I have spoken to Celtic Park today to see if they have a memorial to the fallen who played for the hoops, here is the reply I got.

We at present do not have a memorial but we are hoping to have a new museum built in the summer and a memorial to the fallen is on the agenda. Could you please phone back in August to see how things are progressing.

I felt, a brilliant reply however over 90 years since the start of the war and no memorial as of yet is a bit bad but having said that they have only just put a memorial up to the founder of the club and that was in 1888. Time will tell.

That article finishes with the line:
"Isn't it about time Celtic officially recognised this forgotten part of their social history in a similar way, so that the fans of today and tomorrow can respect the memory of the 7 players from yesterday who died during the Great War?"
Hopefully after 90 years this may soon be rectified.
