Twitter Quiz 5 (End of Season Special)

 

 

Good evening ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the latest installment of our monthly quiz, this time featuring our end of season roundup.

Below, any of you who missed the quiz on Twitter will be able to find all of the questions as always.

The answers can be found at the very bottom of this page, so as not to ruin it for anyone who wants to show the quiz to a family member or friend etc.

Also, should anyone who missed the earlier quizzes fancy a go at them, they can be found by clicking the following links: Quiz 1Quiz 2Quiz 3 and Quiz 4.

Briefly, I must apologise for the fact there was no quiz for the month of April. This was down to illness on my part, but normal service has now been resumed as you can see.

That aside, all that is left to do now is wish departing manager Ronny Deila all the best for the future and thank you all, as ever, for your participation.
