"The game is over, the rebels have won"
This t-shirt is an image of the audio wave of those immortal words.
As a young fan, Fergus McCann was a regular on the Croy Celtic Supporters’ bus.
Years later, having emigrated to Canada, he looked on in horror as the old “families” board steered his Grand Old Team to the very brink of extinction. It was more than the committed Celtic man could stand.
Aligning himself with the home-based “Rebels” of the early 1990s who were in the front line of the bitter battle for the soul of Celtic, Fergus picked his moment. His intervention at the head of the consortium that would decisively wrench power from the Kelly/Grant/White axis, launched the club into the ensuing and ongoing land of “Jelly and Ice Cream” via his phenomenally successful 1994 Share Issue.
On March 4 of that pivotal year, these immortal words were spoken on the steps of Celtic Park:
“The game is over … the ‘Rebels’ have won!”
Those two simple but profound phrases ushered in the era that, over time, saw Celtic Park rise from the mediocrity of long-term neglect into the Theatre of Dreams it is today; and created in Celtic a club fit for the ‘King of Kings’.
We, the beneficiaries of his foresight and business acumen, all owe that deceptively innocuous-looking wee man a huge debt of gratitude.
