Celtic: The Official History
By (author) Brian Wilson

In 1967, they became the first British club to win the European Cup, while domestically they have won, to date, 47 league titles, 36 Scottish Cups and 16 League Cups. The story of Celtic continues – of success on the field, backed by a strong organisation off it, and all underpinned by a commitment to remain true to the charitable roots of the club., this is just the latest chapter …
