The veteran songster will perform a short set of his most famous songs and will top a bill of “special guests from the world of football, music and entertainment”, including opera singer Russell Watson, Les McKeown’s Legendary Bay City Rollers and Eddi Reader.
Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will share his memories of Celtic’s triumph and tribute will be paid to legendary manager Jock Stein and his players, all of whom were born within 30 miles of Celtic Park.
