Martin O’Neill | My Life At Celtic & A Life In Football (Re-Release)

Martin O’Neill stepped outside the main doors at Celtic Park on the 1st June 2000 and declared that he would do “everything in his power” to bring some success back to Celtic Football Club.

By the end of his first season he had reclaimed the Scottish League title, won both domestic cups, and for good measure delivered a 6-2 hammering of bitter rivals Rangers along the way.

This was a first Treble for the club since Jock Stein’s side achieved the same feat 31 years earlier in 1969.

European success would also follow as O’Neill’s Celtic dispatched Ajax to qualify for the Champions League Group Stages where we would face the likes of Juventus and Porto.

The following season then took us on the Road to Seville. A journey that many supporters will never forget.

All in all it was a thrilling, trophy laden, glorious 5 years for the Irishman at Celtic Park.

A man who built the platform on which the modern Celtic now sits.

Join us on this very special re-released episode with Celtic legend Martin O’Neill as he sits with Tino to discuss a life in football (original recorded in December 2022).
