Jonathan told us about the youth team at the time his dad was around the academy was one of the best Celtic has had in a long time with many players like Simon Ferry ,Darren O’Dea and Michael Gardyne all went on to have great career’s.
Most Celtic fans at that time would probably agree that under Tommy Burns Celtic played one of the best brands of football there has been at Celtic and still to this day we may not have seen anything like it, with a front forward line of Di Canio, Van Hooijdonk and Jorge Cadete that team always had the feeling of scoring goals Jonathan and Robert agreed that how they didn’t win the league that year is still hard to realise as it was a very good team with brilliant players like the the maestro Paul McStay,
