MARTIN O’NEILL guided Celtic to a silverware clean sweep in his managerial debut campaign in 2000/01.

The Irishman came in with the force of a hurricane after the Hoops had limped through the previous league season and had been knocked out of the Scottish Cup following the infamous 3-1 home loss to Inverness Caley Thistle.

Rookie boss John Barnes was sacked in the immediate aftermath and club legend Kenny Dalglish took over in a caretaker capacity until O’Neill assumed control in the summer.

The former Northern Ireland international star quit Leicester City to move to Glasgow and realised he had to hit the ground running.

How much can you remember about O’Neill’s first title winner and that of other Celtic managers this century?
