To pull on the green and white hoops and play for Celtic on even just one occasion is a privilege many aspire to but few achieve. For a select group of players - forty-six in total - they have managed to do so over 300 times. Not surprisingly, it's a group packed full of Celtic legends, including Billy McNeill, Paul McStay, Danny McGrain, Jimmy McGrory, Patsy Gallacher, Charlie Tully, Jimmy Johnstone, Tommy Burns, Pat Bonner, Henrik Larsson and Neil Lennon. Each of these men have not only played more than 300 times for Celtic, they have all been in the starting XI on at least 300 occasions, playing in some of our greatest games and most memorable triumphs. 'A Grand Old Team To Play For' chronicles these legends of the club, from when they joined Celtic right through to their last game, and including the highs and lows of their time at Paradise. It's a book which celebrates the unique history of Celtic Football Club, and some of the greats who have passed through Parkhead's gates. And it also contains two markers of the past and present - the present in the shape of the foreword written by current Celtic captain, Scott Brown, himself approaching the 300 mark, while the past includes an eye witness account of Celtic's very first game, on May 28, 1888...
