Video: Celtic Fans Take Over Street in Lisbon With Rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone

Yesterday marked the 50th anniversary of Celtic’s European Cup win – widely regarded as the greatest achievement in Scottish sporting history.

On May 25th 1967, Jock Stein’s Hoops side – made up of eleven players who were born within a 30-mile radius of Parkhead – defeated Inter Milan 2-1 to become the first British team to lift the giant trophy.

Fans across the world celebrated in their own way, with many flocking to the SSE Hydro in Glasgow as stars of music and football took to the stage.

But many travelled to Portugal to celebrate in the very city where Billy McNeill famously lifted the European Cup – Lisbon.

And a huge street party took place where hundreds of fans sang their own rendition of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’in a narrow street.

Brendan Rodgers’ side take on Aberdeen tomorrow where they can lift a famous treble should they beat Derek McInnes’ in-form Dons side – meaning Rodgers would become only the third manager to do so, along with Jock Stein and Martin O’Neill.
