The Battle To Save Celtic: Part 3 – Jim Orr, Save Our Celts

30 years ago this very month Scots-Canadian businessman Fergus McCann swept into Celtic Park and secured the clubs very existence with an eleventh hour investment that would alter the course of Celtic’s history for ever.

A move such as that however can’t be engineered by just one man and many figures played a key role in what eventually took place on that day back on the 4th of March 1994.

In this special new series by The Celtic Exchange we speak to some of those individuals as we bring you the inside stories of what unfolded during that incredible time in Celtic history.

We’re covering the story from all angles and in Part 3 we speak with Jim Orr of “Save Our Celts” the original fan group set up to put pressure on Celtic’s underperforming board.

Their journey started a full 3 years before Fergus McCann finally took over in March 1994 and Jim picks up the story of why and how they were formed, followed by everything that then played out during that turbulent time.

The Battle To Save Celtic is a new mini-series by The Celtic Exchange marking 30 years since Fergus McCann’s takeover of Celtic in March 1994 .
