PACKIE BONNER

The longest serving keeper of the last 50 years, the Irishman achieved his own place in Celtic’s history as Jock Stein’s final signing, although the deal was mainly arranged through Sean Fallon.

Bonner came into the Celtic side in 1980 and picked up back-to-back league championship medals in his first two seasons.

As the regular keeper throughout the eighties he starred in the 1985 Scottish Cup Final win, kept a clean sheet at Love Street a year later, then shared goalkeeping duties with Allen McKnight during the Centenary season.

After being freed by Lou Macari, he returned to the club under Tommy Burns, signing off in style with a clean sheet against Airdrie in the 1995 Scottish Cup Final. He achieved legendary status in Ireland with his displays at the 1988 European Championships and 1990 World Cup.

Packie made 641 Celtic appearances.
