Answers

 

 

1. Only two of Celtic’s ten most expensive signings to date occurred in the 1990’s, but which players were involved? – Eyal Berkovic (£5,750,000) and Alan Stubbs (£3,500,000). N.B.: For those of you who said Rafael Scheidt, Wikipedia has the transfer listed as going through on the first of January 2000.

 

2. Who is this? – Wakaso Mubarak

3. Which Celtic player, now known by another surname, was initially named “Byrne” whilst an infant? – Anthony Stokes, originally called “Anthony Byrne”.

 

4. True or false – Celtic have never lost a Scottish Cup tie by more than a three goal margin. – False. Although this is listed as being the case on one of Celtic’s official Wikipedia pages, Scottish Cup hammerings have been known to happen, with a 4-0 loss to Rangers in the Scottish Cup Final of 1928 perhaps being the most prominent, although some older readers may recall the 4-0 semi-final defeat of 1959 against St. Mirren.

 

5. Who is this? – Billy Stark

6. Which ex-Celt was nicknamed “Mad Dog”? – Stephane Mahe

 

7. Prior to Henrik Larsson’s 35 league goals in the 2000/01 campaign, who were the last three Celts to finish as the competition’s top goalscorer with a total of 30 plus? – Brian McClair (35, 1986/87), Bobby Lennox (32, 1967/68) and Joe McBride (31, 1965/66). N.B.: Joe McBride shared this accolade with Alexander Ferguson of Dunfermline at the end of the 1965/66 season, so if we were to exclude him based on this, the next Celt to win this title outright whilst scoring 30 plus league goals would be James McGrory (50, 1935/36).

 

8. Who is this? – Jo Inge Berget

9. Gary Hooper scored all five goals in a league match against Hearts, but who was the last Celt to score five or more goals in a competitive match prior to the Englishman’s feat? – Dixie Deans (6), versus Partick Thistle, 17th November 1973

 

10. True or false – Lee Naylor and Efe Ambrose have made more appearances for Celtic combined than Bertie Auld did alone. – False, but not by as large a margin as you might think. Bertie made 279 appearances in all major competitions for Celtic, whilst Lee Naylor made 100 and Efe Ambrose has made 159. However, should Efe go on to make 21 more competitive outings in the Hoops, this statistic will fall.

 

11. Who is this? – Frank Haffey

12. According to the Celtic Wiki, only four Italians have ever played a senior competitive match for Celtic – can you name them? – Massimo Donati, Enrico Annoni, Paolo Di Canio and Rolando Ugolini.

 

13. True or false – Willie Maley managed Celtic Football Club for a longer period than current boss Ronny Deila has been alive. – True, whilst Willie Maley managed Celtic for more than 42 years, Ronny Deila is just 40 at this moment in time.

 

14. Who is this? – Shaun Maloney

15. Henrik Larsson made more appearances than any other Celt hailing from outwith Scotland, England, Ireland or Wales, but which overseas player is second to the Swede in this regard? – Stiliyan Petrov. Whilst Henrik turned out 315 times for Celtic, the Bulgarian ran him a very close second, eventually finishing his Celtic career with 311 competitive outings for the Celts.
