The Celtic fans in the Transfer Tavern are in good spirits ahead of their trip to Belgium in the Champions League tomorrow.
Indeed, their Old Firm domination continues and the Bhoys in the bar can’t remember enjoying such a gulf in class between themselves and bitter rivals, Rangers.
So, the mood amongst our punters clad in green and white has been made even better following yesterday’s confirmation on the club’s official website that the Lisbon Lions would be inducted into the Scottish Football Hall of Fame next month.
Perhaps the most famous Scottish side of all time, the 1967 European Cup winners beat Inter Milan 2-1 at the San Siro to become the first British side to win the top prize on the continent.
50 years on from the club’s most famous achievement, the Lions will be celebrated with a special dinner at Hampden Park, news to have been applauded by the punters propping up our bar.
“The Lisbon Lions are highly deserving of any honour they receive”, said Peter Lawwell.
”They are a group of men who put Scottish football firmly on the map so many years ago by becoming the first British club to win the greatest prize of all in club football.”
“As a club we have been delighted over so many years to pay tribute to their success and have just celebrated a very special anniversary year in style. It is fantastic that they have now been recognised in this way, by taking their rightful place in the Hall of Fame.”
