Ep 49: Remembering the Lisbon Lions 50 Years On

Fifty years ago, a Celtic team, made up of 10 men from a 10-mile radius around Glasgow and one from just 30 miles away, made history when they beat Inter-Milan to win the European Cup in Lisbon. John Giles played against that team and he joins Eamon to discuss the Lisbon Lions, as they came to be known. They also reflect on the Premier League season and name their player of the year and coach of the year.
