In the proud history of Celtic Football Club, 9 May 1998 will forever be remembered as a momentous day. A nerve-shredding 2-0 victory against St Johnstone on the last day of the season pipped Rangers to the league flag and prevented them from winning what would have been a historic tenth title in a row. Now, in "The Inner Sanctum", the controversial story behind the glory of that unforgettable season is finally revealed. Packed with exclusive contributions from those who made it happen, including manager Wim Jansen, assistant manager Murdo MacLeod and star players of the day, such as Henrik Larsson, Paul Lambert, Craig Burley, Alan Stubbs, Tom Boyd and Jackie McNamara, the book reveals the splits in the dressing-room and at management level that almost destroyed the club's pursuit of glory.It also charts the boozing and the bust-ups, as well as the laughter and tears, that were part and parcel of the path towards this significant milestone. "The Inner Sanctum" will be relished by all Hoops supporters and is a fitting tribute to the club's achievements that glorious season.
