The Celtic View is the official weekly magazine of Celtic Football Club in Glasgow, Scotland.

History and profile[edit]

Launched in August 1965 as a four-page newspaper, it is the oldest football club magazine in the United Kingdom. It was the brainchild of Jack McGinn, later Chairman of Celtic, who at the time was working in the circulation department of Beaverbrook Newspapers.[1] McGinn himself edited the paper for the first few years, with circulation initially reaching around 26,000 copies.[2] Today it is a 72-page glossy magazine with over 6,000 weekly readers, and the top selling club magazine in the United Kingdom.

In 2005, Celtic entered into a new agreement with CRE8, an Oxfordshire-based publisher of sports magazines and match programmes, to publish the magazine, although the content is still produced by The Celtic View staff.
