CELEB Celtic fan Martin Compston is reveling in the good times at Parkhead – because they’re a far cry from when he started following the Hoops.
Still Compston was an addict long before Sweet Sixteen and his faith was repaid when the good times returned to Glasgow’s East End.
This one here.
He told that Celtic View Podcast: “I had the most memorable seasons of my life under Tommy Burns as a coach, where it was said: ‘You score three goals, but we score four’.”
“We’ve had some great teams since then, but this team is among them ange seems to be something special.
“He’s endeared himself to the fans and that’s partly because of the way he represents himself as a person. The players too seem to have embraced the club and the history and there is a real connection to the fan base.
“When you get used to success with our dominance, you have to play with some finesse to keep the players entertained.
“It’s an amazing style of play that we’re seeing and teams are so deep against us that it can be quite inflated but that’s not the case with this team.”
“I’ll say it – we never stop.
“This philosophy was drummed into the players. You have the feeling that there will always be a goal.”
Almost a pro himself, Compston was once on Morton’s schedule, but he keeps up with all the Hoops news from his US base just outside Las Vegas.
And he’s determined to make the best of it while things go well.
He added: “People always say you’re a glory hunter, but you’re born into Celtic – you have no choice.”
“When I was my nephew’s age, it wasn’t a happy time to be one Celtic Fan growing up.
“I think that’s why we appreciate where we are as a club at the moment, because when I was eight the club was a mess – we really appreciate how far we’ve come.”
