Henrik was at celtic longer than big pierre in the 90s so why not henrik for both 90s and 2000s.

Buzz, for the 1950s - Charlie Tully. Fans idolised Charlie and I saw him later in his career but he still did the nutmegs, and all the cheeky chappie things that would be branded 'disrespectful' nowadays. So confident and with a wee smile on his face I've never seen a guy play to the fans as much as he did.

To be fair there wasn’t much to pick them in the 1990s but maybe John Collins deserved it.

Collins stayed loyal for 6 years and he was a brilliant player in a poor Celtic team.

I was a big Pierre fan but you’re right DRB because 2 years isn’t long enough service, over a full decade.

The same could be said for Larsson because he also only had 2 full seasons in the 1990s and then he broke his leg in October 1999.

I’m changing my mind to JC for the 1990s.

Celtic Flame,
I can imagine, they would’ve thought Tully was being disrespectful for scoring 2 corners in a row at Falkirk.

Celtic were losing 2-0 away to Falkirk in a Scottish Cup tie when we got a corner.
Tully scored from the corner but it was disallowed and he was told to retake the corner.
Tully repeated the corner and scored again to get Celtic back into the Cup tie.

Tully then set up the equaliser and Celtic went on to win the match 3-2 for a memorable comeback.

A nearly 40 year old Jimmy Delaney played for Falkirk that day.
Delaney is John Kennedy’s Grandfather.

John Collins was some player and played beside the Maestro.

I was at the Bronx when he bent the ball around the wall from the same position after the fans had been banned the first time so they’ve been banning us for a while.

I was sitting in the Broomloan Road stand and before he took the free kick I said to the guy with me JC is going to do it again because we missed the last one.

As a matter of interest and Celtic folklore when we were banned from the Bronx Sweeney Plant Hire from Airdrie flew a ‘Hail Hail the Celts are here’ banner by aeroplane over the crumbledome.

90's Larsson, 2000's lubo.

I remember my auld man telling me about Charlie Tully scoring twice having been asked to retake the corner.

I think Ed remembers and told me about it as well.

{Ed007's Note - Are we going there again? ??

I remember seeing the banner when watching the highlights.

I think it was yourself JFP, that pointed out that Collins had scored in 4 games in a row against Rangers.

That was incredible considering the gap between the clubs, in the worst period of our history.

I read his nickname was twinkle toes because he only wore a size 4 or 5 boot.

Ed ?????.
