They Wore the Hoops of Green & White

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Jimmy McGrory used his head
More than he used his feet,
In his long shorts and mining boots,
He would score for the Celtic every week.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The fans would yell for Charlie Tully
At the beginning of each and every game,
With his Irish charm and daring skills,
He drove the opposition defenders insane.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The emotional play of Tommy Burns,
Had defenders flailing with his twist & turns,
A dedicated player to the green & white jersey,
Committed to every game he played.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 A special mention to Neil McCallum,
Who played in Celtic’s first ever game,
With the Celtic cross adorned on his chest,
The first ever goal for Celtic, burst the Rangers net.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The legend of Wullie Maley forever lives on,
40 years at Celtic, this native Irish son,
He is proudly remembered as manager & player,
Where he brought to Celtic, years of silverware.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The hoops of the Glasgow Celtic
have been worn by many a talented player,
Who brought a touch of history
For all the fans to share.
