If you know the history – Celtic at birth, 50 & 100, Part 3 – May 1988 May 1988.

On Saturday, 7 May, as Celtic celebrated a League title in our Centenary year with a 1-0 victory over Dunfermline at Parkhead, the ‘first European Cup’ finally arrived in Paradise, 74 years after the challenge games between Scottish champions, Celtic and English FA Cup-holders, Burnley, in Budapest then Turf Moor.

Part 1, covering May 1888 is HERE while Part 2 covering Celtic at 50 in May 1938 (featuring two very interesting videos) is available HERE.



Happy birthday Celtic!’ An unusual but classy touch.

Three-quarters of a century later, Ferencvaros chairman, Zoltan Magyar, attended the Dunfermline match and presented the Ferencvaros Vase to his Celtic counterpart, Jack McGinn.

Credit to Brendan Sweeney’s excellent book, ‘Celtic, The Early Years’ and to the Celtic Wiki on Kerrydale Street, both invaluable sources of information.

The original Budapest Cup had gone missing following the outbreak of the First World War, just after the teams had drawn in Hungary, Celtic winning the replay 2-1 in Lancashire in October 1914.
