A throw-back to the 70s – and the heyday of the Bay City Rollers – with these silk scarves which were posted on the Huddleboard. Tartan Tic anyone?

A fantastic silk scarf from the ’70s with a brilliant cartoon of Celtic’s greatest ever manager – showing off his muscles!
It’s unusual to see the saltire on a Celtic scarf – unless it’s been re-formatted to green and white 😉
Keith Adams sent in this picture of the scarf belonging to his Uncle Vic – along with a photo of Vic and his wife Jean wearing their Celtic scarves many years ago.
They are pictured in the Gorbals where Jean was from. Vic was originally from Dublin and a great Celtic man. He moved to Glasgow during World War 2. Keith remembers asking his aunt how often his uncle attended Celtic games – she replied “Ah, wherever you’d find Celtic you’d find Vic.”
His uncle’s scarf and the photo of his aunt and uncle are now framed together at home. Many thanks for sharing Keith – a wonderful family treasure.
One of a range of colour scarves with elaborate prints on them which sold well during the 1980s. This commemorates the greatest ever Celtic team with shamrocks, tricolours, crests and the Big Cup for good measure.
Thanks to Big Dunc from the Green Brigade forum for this pic.
Otago Tim on CelticMinded quite rightly treasures this classic design which he’s had since 1968 – it’s older than the current Celtic manager!
A straightforward celebration of winning the title ten years ago . . .
And the capture of a popular fans chant celebrating the Twin Brothers Grimm and their failure to convert the easiest of chances . . .
Was good to hear that chanted getting dusted down for the Ajax games this season!
Thanks to Lucky Celtic YFronts (thankfully no pic of those was submitted) from KDS for these.
