AS a player, Danny McGrain built his reputation as an accomplished full back through his formidable slide tackling. And later this month, the Celtic legend will be doing a ‘slide’ of a different variety, as he has signed up to participate in Celtic FC Foundation’s Zip Slide in Paradise event.
Taking place on Saturday, March 26 at Celtic Park, the Zip Slide sees participants ‘sliding’ diagonally from East to West, leaving from the very top corner of the North Stand seating deck, at the Lisbon Lions stand side and gliding all the way across to the lower corner of the Jock Stein stand at the Main Stand side.
If you fancy joining Danny McGrain and soaring across Paradise, places are still available and you can sign up HERE
All we ask is that you commit to raising a minimum of £125 (after entry fee) for Celtic FC Foundation.
Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. The non-refundable registration fee is £30 per person. Please ensure you read the TERMS AND CONDITIONSthoroughly before registering.
Speaking about his participation in the event, Celtic legend, Danny McGrain said: “Originally, my good friend Tony Roper had committed to do the slide but he has had to bow out, so I decided to step up for the cause in his absence.
“I hope supporters will get involved and give generously and I’m sure it’ll be a great day.”
