Reading like a school trip it provided Stevie Chalmers with details of his trip to Lisbon in 1967, a trip that would change the face of European football. Fifty three years later the visit remains the most significant match in the history of the game in Scotland.

The matter of fact approach and detail is fantastic. If Chalmers hadn’t scored in the 85th minute the trip would have been extended by two days.
Fortunately, Stevie steered the ball past Sarti, his life would never be the same again, a milestone in Scottish history was created, the Lisbon Lions arrived that day and remain revered by the Celtic support.
The group of players that returned to Glasgow on May 26 carried with them some excess baggage, a big shiny trophy.
From Glasgow (Abbotsinch) Airport they travelled back to Celtic Park where a full stadium and surrounding streets celebrated their achievement.
The Lisbon story constantly grows, this travel itinerary adds further light to the greatest journey ever made.
