‘Tic Toons – Dan Doyle 1894

'Tic Toons - Dan Doyle 1894

The club was only a few years old when this cartoon appeared. Celtic had just won the league title for the second time. The Hoops hadn’t yet been invented and the players wore green and white stripes at the time. But note the hooped socks!

It is definitely defensive die-hard Dan Doyle with his distinctive curly hair on the reverse but it’s not clear who the dandy is on the front. Sandy McMahon?

A great memento of the game from well over a century ago. ‘What a clinker!’ indeed
