"Dreams never end"; Celtic-daft rock band Primal Scream blown away by fans' Fir Park display
Glasgow rock band Primal Scream have paid tribute to Celtic’s travelling support, after a banner referencing one of their most well-known songs was unveiled in the away end at Fir Park last night.
As both Motherwell and Celtic left the tunnel before kick-off, they were greeted by a dazzling display of colour from the away end, with a banner covering the gap between the two tiers of the Tommy McLean stand that read “Our light shines on”.
Given their very vocal support of Celtic in the past, particularly from frontman Bobby Gillespie, it seems likely that the band would have been watching to see the banner live, and they were quick to mention how honoured they were to be referenced by their beloved club’s fans.
On the band’s official Instagram page, they wrote: “So, this happened last night. @celticfc V @motherwellfc If you’d told the teenage us when we stood on the Jungle back in the day that we would have a Tifo inspired by one of our songs made by the Celtic FC Ultras we woulda thought u were insane.
“It happened. Dreams never end. We are HONOURED !!!!”
The banner alters the lyric “My light shines on” from the band’s single Movin’ On Up, a cut from their 1991 breakout album Screamadelica.
Celtic, of course, won the game 2-1, thanks to goals from Kyogo Furuhashi and Daizen Maeda to maintain their seven-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership, which will no doubt add even more significance to the gesture, given that it marked a crucial three points in the side’s bid to retain the Scottish Premiership title.
In truth, the fans could hardly have picked a more fitting lyric, as Celtic’s light continue to shine on in the Scottish Premiership.
