For years copies of this book have been changing hands on the Internet for up to 10 times its original publication price. It remains the definitive account of the most dramatic and important period in the modern history of Celtic Football Club.
A deal they said could never happen overturned a 106-year dynasty. It took a carefully planned campaign, completed only eight minutes before the receivers were to be called in.David Low, the financial expert who conceived the plan, and Francis Shennan, the award-winning journalist who broke the story, describe the secret meetings in Montreal, Phoenix , the Caribbean, Belfast ... and even a cow shed in Fermanagh.
The McCann takeover was the foundation for the 21st-century Celtic. The McCann years have been called the perfect template for developing a modern football club. It was never inevitable that they would happen. The events in this book so nearly turned out differently. It remains a hell of a story - what it led to makes it a great one.
