Celtic Park – New Year’s Day, 1954 (film)

1954  The Jungle and tricolour

Great footage of Celtic Park including The Jungle in all its glory in 1954 as Celtic’s Double-winning team of that season beat Rangers in Paradise.

This is part of a great series of clips relating to Celtic from bygone years released by British Movietone.  There are some real delights in this short film – excellent shots of the crowd and the old ground; Jock Stein as Celtic Captain;  Charlie Tully in full flow and Neilly Mochan scoring yet again in his debut season in the Hoops when he emerged as top scorer with 25 goals.  Enjoy!
