Twelve Celtic pics at Christmas – 31st Dec

This photograph was taken before the ‘Jungle’s Last Stand’ match on 1st June 1993. A crowd of 19,316, in spite of the heavy rain falling on the stadium, watched the final match played in front of ‘The Jungle’ as a standing area. A match was played Celtic’s 1967 Lisbon Lions side ( only Willie Wallace, domiciled in Australia was missing) and Manchester United’s European Cup-winning side of 1968.
