With so many forms of media available to consume these days at the touch of a button its refreshing that ordinary Celtic fans are still keeping Celtic fanzines alive and kicking after many had written them off years ago.
We at Mt90M HQ are delighted to play an active part as we released issue 105 earlier this month and celebrated 18 years of producing the fanzine in style in City North by hosting a charity dinner in keeping with the traditions of Celtic FC and our founder Brother Walfrid.
Celtic supporters can boast 4 fanzines still in print and on sale at Celtic Park on match days, More than 90 Minutes, Not the View, Alternative View and the Shamrock. Not bad when you consider we were told that print was dead but we are still here.
You can pick up issue 105 outside Celtic Park on match days, outside away stadiums, in shops and selected outlets or by visiting our online store where you can also download the digital edition, buy merchandise and tickets for our events.
Issue 105 delivers again with 48 pages packed with Celtic FC and Celtic Fan related articles and interviews. Inside you can read the Editors thoughts on all things Celtic, I wanna be Edouard, the story behind our latest cover, the player, the song the band.
