The 1996/97 season was a notable one for Celtic Football Club, one of Scotland's most historic and successful teams. Here's a breakdown of that season for Celtic:
Scottish Premier Division: Celtic finished the season as champions, claiming their 36th league title. This significant achievement ended Rangers' streak of nine consecutive titles. Celtic finished with 78 points, two points ahead of Rangers.
Scottish Cup: Celtic reached the final of the Scottish Cup but faced defeat at the hands of Kilmarnock, losing 1-0.
League Cup: The Hoops progressed to the semi-finals of the League Cup but were knocked out by arch-rivals Rangers.
Europe: In European competition, the UEFA Cup, Celtic faced an early exit in the first round, being knocked out by Hamburg SV of Germany.
Manager: The team was under the stewardship of Tommy Burns throughout the season.
Key Players: Celtic's roster boasted prominent names like Paul McStay, Jorge Cadete, Pierre van Hooijdonk, and Paolo Di Canio. Their contributions were vital in securing the league title for the club.
Notable Moments: A defining moment of the season was Celtic's 2-0 victory over Rangers in their penultimate league match, significantly influencing their championship win, with goals from Jorge Cadete and Paolo Di Canio. Additionally, fans celebrated the unveiling of the newly built North Stand at Celtic Park, marking the completion of the stadium's transformation into a modern 60,000 all-seater venue.
Off the pitch: The season wasn't without its challenges, as boardroom disputes became evident. Fergus McCann, the majority shareholder, was at the center of these disagreements, often clashing with the management and certain players.
