CELTIC DAFT: The Johnny Doyle Story

Out now – the first ever biography of legendary Celt and fans’ favourite Johnny Doyle.

Johnny Doyle came from a Celtic-daft family in Viewpark, Lanarkshire and had to be persuaded to give up his local supporters club membership to try and become a professional footballer.
