The Full Story
The Longest Forty Production Co. are delighted to announce an intimate Evening with Celtic cult-hero Alan Thompson.
The Geordie began his career at his local club Newcastle United before starring at both Bolton Wanderers and Aston Villa.
He signed for Martin O'Neill's Celtic for a reported 2.75 million in 2000 and was an integral part of the Celtic team that reached the 2003 UEFA Cup Final where Celtic narrowly lost 3–2 in extra time to Jose Mourinho’s Porto.
Thompson scored the only goal in the 2005 Scottish Cup Final for Celtic against Dundee United to give the outgoing Martin O'Neill his seventh trophy whilst in charge of the club. He also scored the winning goal against Rangers in two separate Old Firm derby matches and seven against Rangers in all. Having a knack of scoring in big games during his time at Celtic Park, Thompson scored several important goals in European competition including the opening goal in Celtic's 2–0 win over Liverpool at Anfield in March 2003 during Celtic's run to the UEFA Cup Final, and against Barcelona at Parkhead in a 1–0 win a year later as The Hoops reach the quarterfinals of the same tournament.
A not-to-be-missed event for all Celtic fans in the area, Alan will discuss all the amazing tales from his incredible career before answering questions from the audience.
