We’ve set our mission to name the finest five-a-side team from every club in the land and today it’s Celtic’s turn to have a side picked of players well-equipped to deal with keeping the ball under head height and not encroaching within the penalty area.

Goalkeeper: Ronnie Simpson

The Lisbon Lion is generally considered as Celtic’s greatest ever goalkeeper, so there’s no reason not to put him in front of our half-sized goalposts.

Defender: Danny McGrain

Hard as nails yet with a silky enough tough to bring the ball out of defence, this Celtic legend is the perfect defender for a five-a-side game.

Midfielder: Paul McStay

Our midfield general Paul McStay has the second most amount of appearances in Celtic history.

Attacking Midfielder: Jimmy Johnstone

‘Jinky’ was voted as the greatest ever Celtic player by fans in 2002 and the diminutive winger’s dribbling skills would translate perfectly to the right spaces of five-a-side.

Striker: Henrik Larsson

Speed kills in this game and combined with his finishing power, Celtic would have the perfect player to get up and down the pitch, before applying the perfect finish.

That's our ultimate Celtic five-a-side team, what's yours?
