A new six-part series that will showcase the fantastic careers of ex-Celtic and Rangers players starts next week.

The first of six episodes of Icons of Football which will be released on iPlayer next Friday will contain the trials and tribulations of former Celtic forward, Charlie Nicholas.

Telling remarkable stories about how a “dream came true” when he had the chance to pull on the famous Hoops top and how a transfer to down south led him to be known for showbiz parties and clubs in London.

Viewers will also be given a great insight into how Charlie’s return to Celtic never worked out for him as he couldn’t reach the heights of his first stint.

The now Sky Sports Soccer Saturday pundit who has forged a career in the media since retiring will sit back and discuss his career, in full, with contributors also joining him such as sports broadcaster, Hayley McQueen, Hoops legendary shot-stopper, Pat Bonner, former Clyde manager and Celtic player, Jim Duffy as well as Viv Anderson, Willie Miller, David Robertson and music writer, Adrian Thrills and Simple Minds singer Jim Kerr.

Other episodes will have a deep dive into the careers of Ibrox legend, Richard Gough and well-revered commentator, Archie Macpherson, as well as Paul Sturrock, Rose Reilly and Steve Archibald.

The first episode will be airing on BBC Scotland at 10.30pm on Friday, June 16 with all remaining episodes being made available that night too.
