A Celtic legend is returning to Glasgow for a special event. 

Fergus McCann will visit the city on August 31 to attend the opening gala performance of The Celtic Story at the SEC Armadillo.

The 82-year-old businessman was the club's former chairman and managing director and is credited as the man who saved Celtic from bankruptcy in 1994.

Glasgow Times:

All profits from the opening gala show will be going to the Celtic FC Foundation, which was established by McCann 28 years ago and aims to help people living in poverty by targeting issues such as hunger, employment and education

He said: “I really look forward to travelling to Glasgow for the Gala performance of The Celtic Story and I am sure like all fellow supporters in attendance we will enjoy an entertaining evening.

"In particular, I wanted to travel to Glasgow for the Gala performance as all profits from this evening will go directly to Celtic FC Foundation.  

"When we established the Club’s charitable arm in 1995 we wanted to create something special which helped people in real need across all areas of society.

"The Foundation has gone from strength to strength over many years and the real, meaningful work which has been done since its formation has been life-changing for so many deserving people and so many causes.

"We hope that through this night we can continue to support the Foundation in making that positive difference to many more lives.”

The Celtic Story was first commissioned by the club in 1988 as a celebration of their centenary season and starred legendary actor Peter Mullan.

There have since been three revivals of the production, and the latest has been updated to reflect the changing times and Celtic's evolving history
