2017 marks the 50th anniversary of Celtic becoming the first British club to win the European Cup. Their 2-1 victory against Inter Milan in Lisbon earnt a place in history for “the Lisbon Lions”. It was a privilege to return to the stadium in Lisbon this month with 5 of that team, to take some commemorative pictures which will then be auctioned for the Celtic Foundation at Gala dinners in London and Glasgow. All the team that day in 1967 were born within 40 miles of Glasgow. How the world has changed.
