Celtic Fan Johnny Marr, 2003

16 March 2011

In this 2003 article by Richard Purden titled This Charming Fan – Legendary Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr tells how he’s happy to be a City Bhoy, Johnny reminisces about his all time favourite Celt, Charlie Nicholas and his strong affinity for Celtic. Great photos by Jill Jennings.

Johnny Marr had to decide between music and football in his early teens but when it came to supporting Celtic there was no choice! He played for Manchester City juniors and turned down an apprenticeship with Nottingham Forest – but at the tender age of 18 he formed The Smiths with Morrissey.
