This week St Anthony returns with another former Celtic star from many of our youths - Mike Conroy.
Mike signed for Celtic in 1978 and scored on his debut - unfortunately that was a 4-1 defeat to Hibs. Mike was at Celtic at a time when the middle of the park had good young talent and competed for a starting place with the likes of Tommy Burns, Mudro McLeod, Davie Provan, Johnny Doyle, Dom Sullivan and Paul McStay. These were the days before squad rotation and when teams won leagues using the same 11 starting players week after week. Like our previous guest Sullivam, Mike eventually moved on to find regular first team football. A man with Celtic heritage, Mike gave his all for the jersey.
