This season marks the 20th anniversary of one of my favorite seasons following Celtic, 2002/03 Although no silverware ended up at Paradise that season, I cherish all those memories as we travelled throughout Scotland and Europe selling More than 90 Minutes Celtic Fanzine outside each ground.
The memories of the laughs we had on our travels and the heartbreak we all felt as we left Seville late in the night after a sickening defeat to Porto are still fresh in the mind. Without the good old Credit Union, we would have all been watching on TV.
I am lucky that I will now get to relive that season with one of the heroes of Martin O’Neill’s Celtic side.
Big John Hartson will be on stage at Peadar Browns, Dublin on Friday 11 Nov 2022. Twenty years previous in the winter of 2002. John was on fire in front of goal banging in 4 goals at Celtic Park against Aberdeen and scoring on the road against Dundee United and Rangers.
That was all before his most important goal for Celtic in Vigo when his goal put us in Europe after Christmas for first time in decades. He then gave us the perfect Christmas present a hat-trick against Hearts.
In his time at Celtic, he scored over 100 goals for the club and won 3 Leagues, 2 Scottish Cup and 1 League Cup. I will be interviewing John on stage before hosting the questions and answers session to order tickets and join us click the link below.
