Celtic Underground 261 – My Celtic Life: Packie Bonner

nan

Packie BonnerThis week Harry is joined by Celtic Legend Packie Bonner.

Packie has a book coming out called The Last Line and Harry discusses is “lucky” career and the influences on him which led to making nearly 500 appearances for Celtic in 20 years.

He was Jock Stein’s last signing for the club when he left his native Donegal for the city of Glasgow in 1978, where Packie evolved from being a shy, homesick teenager into a confident, world-class talent and first-choice goalkeeper. Billy McNeill handed him a debut on St Patrick’s Day in 1979, and Packie went on to provide the last line of defence a record 641 times for the club. A seasoned Irish internationalist, Packie was a vital component in the most-celebrated Irish national squad ever, playing in a golden era under the tutelage of the inimitable Jack Charlton.

The podcast could have covered so much more but as you will hear, from a quiet start the noise from the kids playing nearby meant we eventually had to bring the interview to a close.
