And the winner is . . .

And the winner is . . .

Angela Jaap from Glasgow has won our Sean Fallon Book Competition. Almost all entrants second time round gave the correct answer to this question:

When Sean Fallon was manager of Dumbarton, which football legend did he try to sign for The Sons?

The answer was of course Johann Cruyff, a poor man’s Paddy McCourt if ever there was one.

Congratulations to Angela and thanks to all those who took part. Don’t get down, get even – go out and buy a copy. It’s one of the best Celtic books of recent times. Here’s our review of the book here:


We hope to have another competition along shortly.

A fascinating photo from the Sean Fallon biography ‘Celtic’s Iron Man’ by Stephen Sullivan.

Despite all these injuries his dedication to the cause shone through. He once played more than half a match with a double fracture in his arm.
