Name the 114 players that took part in Celtic’s second 9-ina-row triumph?

It’s the ultimate quiz question that would test even the most knowledgeable supporter but during Lockdown there is plenty of time for a quiz like no other.

One error I spotted was Jamie McCart, the defender made a substitute appearance in the League Cup win against Motherwell in 2016 but never played in a league match. Similarly, Marvin Compper is listed but his one and only appearance was in a Scottish Cup tie against Morton.

A number of loan players included, many that are quickly forgotten as well as the younger players that only made a fleeting appearance.

Midfielder Joe Thomson falls into that category, making a substitute appearance away to Dundee United as Ronny Deila rested players ahead of a Champions League qualifier.

Jackson Irvine and Bahrudin Atajic are listed highlighting the far-flung work of the Celtic Academy alongwith local Celtic fans such as Marcus Fraser, Joe Chalmers and John Herron who can claim forever that they played a part in 9-in-a-row.

There is one set of brothers included, Liam and Ewan Henderson can claim that distinction alongside their winners’ medals.
