Jackie McNamara confirmed for Celtic FC Festival

AS the countdown to the inaugural Celtic FC Festival continues, with John Hartson already confirmed to appear on the Saturday, yet another former player is scheduled to attend, with Jackie McNamara taking to the Celtic View stage on Friday, July 26.

The Hoops hero will talk to supporters about his time with Glasgow’s green and white, giving fans the chance to take part in a special Q&A session.

The former captain played in the green and white for a decade, during which time he enjoyed four league title wins, including 'stopping the 10' in 1998, lifted three Scottish Cups, two League Cups, a clutch of Player of the Year awards and also played in the unforgettable UEFA Cup final in Seville!

Access to see Jackie McNamara on the Celtic View stage is included in the ticket price for those attending the Festival on the Friday.

He’ll also be available for fan photo opportunities at selfie stations throughout the day.

Tickets for the inaugural three-day event at Glasgow’s SEC next month are on sale now and available to buy online at celticfcfestival.com, priced £15 for adults, £12.50 for concessions, £7.50 for juniors (aged 6-16) and completely FREE OF CHARGE for kids aged under six.

With Tom Boyd, Simon Donnelly and Frank McAvennie also scheduled to appear over the course of the three-day event, and with many more names yet to be announced, it promises to be a fantastic weekend of Celtic celebration for all supporters.

Confirmation of further special guest appearances and a detailed schedule will be made available on celticfc.net in the coming weeks, so check back regularly for the latest updates.
