Celtic Moments: Celtic players train in Spain before Real Madrid clash, 1980

Celtic players training in Spain before Real Madrid game 1980  Paper Dario Grafico Deportivo

These photos appeared originally in the Spanish sports paper Dario Grafico Deportivo in the build up to Celtic’s visit to the Santiago de Bernabeu Stadium in 1980 for a European Cup tie.  Celtic were set to defend a 2-0 victory from the first leg at Celtic Park.  Being put through their paces by Billy McNeill and physio Brian Scott can be seen – among others – Bobby Lennox, Johnny Doyle, Danny McGrain, Frank McGarvey, Murdo McLeod, Roy Aitken and Roddy MacDonald.

The photo comes from the pages of the excellent Johnny Doyle memorial page – it is well worth a visit:  https://www.facebook.com/johnny.doyle.735

The website is also a tremendous online memorial to Johnny – The Man Who Loved The Green:  www.johnnydoyle.com
