The book – ‘Celtic – How the League was Won 49 Times’ – is packed with stories about Celtic greats from Dan Doyle to Sandy McMahon, Jimmy McMenemy, Jimmy Quinn, Patsy Gallacher, Jimmy McGrory, Billy McNeill, Jimmy Johnstone, Roy Aitken, Henrik Larsson, Shunsuke Nakamura and right up to Broony.

The Celtic support certainly have our focus on achieving 10-in-row!

David Potter, the Celtic historian and author and valuable contributor to The Celtic Star, in anticipation of Celtic hitting the Big 5-0 in league flags, last year wrote a book about the first 49 titles wins.

“Wait a bit, don’t be so fast We’ve left the star turn to the last There in the midst o’ a’ his glory Goal a minute, James McGrory” A week after that, Celtic got over a difficult hurdle at Dens Park, with Delaney and McGrory taking full advantage of two defensive errors, then Hibs were dispatched 4-1 with McGrory scoring again (incredibly, he was not chosen to play for Scotland against England at Wembley!)

CELTIC have now won the Scottish League – fair and square – on 50 occasions, beginning in 1893.

Jimmy McGrory scored a hat trick.

Now for some highlights… “There in the midst o’ a’ his glory, goal a minute, James McGrory” It’s the climax to the 1935-36 season and David Potter picks up the story as Celtic strive for their first title win since 1926… Celtic did indeed win all their remaining games, some of them with a bit of bother – narrow 3-2 wins at Queen’s Park and Airdrie for example – but others gloriously, none more so than on 14 March when in a game against Motherwell at Parkhead, McGrory scored a hat-trick in less than three minutes!
