The Official Celtic Opus

This giant volume tells the inside story of Celtic FC from its foundation in 1888, via Jock Stein’s heroes of 1967, to the modern-day successes of Martin O’Neill and Gordon Strachan.

More than four years in the making, this monumental publication takes the viewer on a journey way beyond the scope of previous history books on the club. An array of brilliant writers, photographers, illustrators, artists (and even dancers) combine to highlight the key strands of the club’s DNA which make Celtic a unique football institution.

The Official Celtic Opus is huge – the weight of it is amazing and the pictures are incredible! I enjoyed participating in the polaroid photo shoot at Celtic Park alongside some of the greatest icons in the club’s history
