THE Lisbon Lions today returned to Celtic Park to help launch their 40th anniversary dinner.

Around 2000 fans are expected to pay tribute to the side that lifted the European Cup back in 1967 with a 2-1 victory over Inter Milan.

The star-studded event will take place in a huge marquee on the pitch on 25th May, exactly 40 years since Jock Stein's side became the first British team to ever win the competition.

A four course meal, top comedy and music acts, unique video compilations as well as other tributes to the Lions from the world of sport.

Simple Minds star Jim Kerr will also perform live.
