This day in Celtic history – 6th October 1993

6th October 1993 Liam Brady resigned

When Billy McNeill left the club after his second spell as manager, Liam Brady came into Celtic Park in a blaze of publicity in June 1991 and immediately brought in some new players, taking Tony Cascarino from Aston Villa for the sum of £1.1million and also Gary Gillespie from Liverpool for a fee of £950,000.

Results were unconvincing and to shore up a leaky defence, Tony Mowbray was brought in from Middlesbrough for £1million. Unfortunately, the season finished trophy-less and for season 1992/93, Stuart Slater, Rudi Vata and Andy Paton were also on the payroll.

Matters did not improve that season and results in the first month of 1993/94 were poor, Celtic having picked up only 9 points in 10 league matches.

On this day in 1993, just after St Johnstone had beaten Celtic 2-1 in Perth, Liam Brady resigned as manager of the club.
