This week Celtic Globetrotter Mark Cameron drops in for a chat with Harry. Their wide ranging discussion covers the joy of being champions at Pittodrie, how the manager will deal with the squad for the last two games and what the squad may or may not be after the (brief) summer break.
It's such a long and wide ranging chat that Harry has decided to split the podcasts up into two bite sized chunks. Podcast 248a is about this season and part b will be along in a few days time where we look at next. Oh and don't forget it's Lisa Hague's birthday bash at Celtic Park this week - funds to Marie Curie.
