Due to the death of Princess Diana. A copy of the programme was given out with the programme for the Motherwell game Sept 10 - buy one, get one free deal.

Jorge Cadete leaves Celtic claiming psychological reasons. He played 48 times (5 as sub) and scored 38 goals. Great Player that was almost as good as Larsson but the similarities ended there.
