Synopsis

Legendary Scotland and Celtic captain Dan Doyle was a character unlike any other, before or since, in the world of football. A brilliant player but with a stormy temper and a troubled relationship with gambling and drink, Doyle's life on and off the pitch makes for an incredible story.Until his retirement in 1899, Doyle was always a controversial figure. Involved in an on-pitch incident that resulted in the death of another player, prone to vocal outbursts against opponents, referees and the FA and even the subject of a prolonged campaign in the English press to have him permanently banned from playing in the country, Doyle never tempered his character. He was free to do as he liked because of his incredible gift as a footballer and because a Celtic or Scotland team with him was infinitely better than one without him.Including a wealth of material scoured from the many interviews the always outspoken Doyle gave, "Dan Doyle: The Life and Death of a Wild Rover" is the story of Scotland's first bad-boy football superstar.

Marie Rowan is a schoolteacher and a part-time tour guide at Celtic Park. She grew up a fourth generation Celtic supporter in Glasgow, her great-grandfather having been one of the first to cheer on the Bhoys at the original Celtic Park. First taken to Parkhead in the early 1950s by her Celtic-mad father, she was privileged to witness such greats as Charlie Tully and, her own favourite, the immensely skilful Willie Fernie playing for the Celts. Being a tour guide at Celtic Park has allowed her to indulge in her passion for researching the earliest days of the club. Marie is also the author of five novels.
