Road to LisboneBook - 2012
In 1967, Celtic manager Jock Stein and his team stepped from the tunnel of Lisbon's Estàdio Nacional to face Inter Milan, the charismatic superstars of Italian soccer, in the European Cup final. This extraordinary novel delves into the very heart of that incredible season through the eyes of Stein--as he drags his team to the very pinnacle of European club soccer--and those of Tom, an idealistic young fan from the East End of Glasgow whose dreams of life beyond the decaying slums of the Gorbals are inextricably tied to those of his heroes. Proving that the Celtic Football Club represents so much more than just a sports institution, this is a story of when hopes and dreams align with self-discovery and triumph over adversity.
