ON THE ROAD – EPISODE 2 of ‘On The Road’ sees Andy Lynch discussing his Celtic career with author Paul John Dykes.

Having signed for Jock Stein’s side for £35,000 in 1973, Andy won the Scottish Cup two years later. With solid displays (and free of injury), Andy soon established himself as Celtic’s first-choice left-back.

Andy explains how, in 1977, he won another Scottish Cup when he famously scored the winning goal against Rangers from the penalty spot. This Old Firm triumph completed a memorable League and Scottish Cup double, but it was to be Jock Stein’s swansong as Celtic’s orchestrator of success.

Billy McNeill’s first season as Celtic’s manager in 1978/79 culminated in him leading his ten men to a winner-takes-all victory over Rangers in a match that is now known simply as ‘The 4-2 Game’.andylynch
