Poetry by Lennoxtown bard Tam Craven is set to be displayed in the Scottish Football Museum, at Glasgow’s Hampden Park.

The news comes as fans prepare to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Celtic’s most famous victory - when the Lisbon Lions became the first British team to win the European Cup.

The club has been a source of inspiration for two of Tam’s most epic poems, with both the 67 verse ‘Lisbon Lions’ poem and the 100 verse ‘Through and Through’, about Celtic players through the ages, set to be on display soon.
