'Our objective is always to try to win with style.' Celtic manager, Jock Stein
40 years ago Celtic entered the European Cup for the first time.
They made history simply by becoming the first British team to ever reach the final, let alone win it.
The 1967 European Cup final remains one of the golden moments of British football history.
A crowd of 77,000 thronged the stadium. Inter Milan was one of the richest, most feared teams in the world and their defensive strategy had been unbeaten all tournament. Celtic were 11 men, all born within 20 miles of Glasgow who had joined a struggling team and fought their way up the League just to reach the European Cup. The odds seemed hopeless.
But Celtic had two weapons; their legendary manager, Jock Stein, who revolutionised the game of football through his positive playing techniques, and their unflagging self-belief. Andy Dougan, life-long Celtic fan, takes us on the thrilling journey with Celtic as, round by round, the team's passion, inventiveness, and above all style brings them to the biggest game in their club's history. A timeless story of inspiration, determination and love of the game.show more
