Finishing touches put on incredible Hampden canvas

Exactly one week on from lining up at Hampden to salute the Celtic support a brilliant canvas has been completed commemorating the event.

Celtic have won many trophies at Hampden, many in the most dramatic of circumstances but the events that followed the 2024 Scottish Cup Final were a first.

Midway inside their half the players, substitutes, coaching staff and others associated with the club lined up to thank the fans as You’ll Never Walk Alone was sung with passion.

Throughout much of the winter it looked like the season was slipping away from Celtic, a variety of factors were involved with little sign of unity across the club.

Suspending the tickets allocated to the Green Brigade was a major factor, when Hearts won at Celtic Park, a week after Celtic had lost at Rugby Park the only audible chants were aimed at the board with the Chairman a particular target.

The Green Brigade were back in place for the next home match, a laboured win over Livingston with top place retained on December 30 with a victory in the Glasgow Derby.

There were dark days ahead however, points were dropped away to Aberdeen and at home to Kilmarnock with little contribution made by the summer signings.

At the start of March Celtic lost away to Hearts, the match was a travesty engineered from the VAR room by John Beaton.

By the end of that month Reo Hatate had returned to action, Cameron Carter-Vickers restored order in defence with a roller-coaster 3-3 draw at Ibrox on April 7 leaving the title still in Celtic’s hands.

May 2024 is a month that no fan will forget in a hurry, sandwiched in the centre was another victory in the Glasgow Derby, the title was clinched away to Kilmarnock with the sun shining on Presentation Day and likewise on Hampden as Adam Idah’s late goal secured the Scottish Cup.

A picture captures a thousand words, the picture above captures thousands of words from thousands of fans, all of whom have their own stories to tell of the season and the cup final victory.

They are now tucked into the memory banks, enjoyed through the summer with the detail in the canvas testimony to the dedication and pride that comes with following Scotland’s most successful club.
