Celtic’s miserable 2009/10 season has claimed another victim: Dominik Diamond’s autobiography. Celtic & Me: Confessions from the Jungle was due to be released the week of the Scottish Cup Final but has now been put back until August 26th.
“Basically I am a selfish person,” said Diamond from his farm in Nova Scotia where he emigrated last year. “I only wrote the book so I could have an excuse to come back and see a Celtic game. Unfortunately that game was going to be the Scottish Cup Final.”
“The poor season hasn’t been a huge surprise to me,” Diamond continued. “Part of the book analyses where the club went wrong after Seville. But even in my worst nightmares I never thought it could be this bad. I don’t want my book to come out as part of this season from hell – Celtic fans have suffered enough! I’ll leave it til the end of August when Martin O Neill will be back as manager. Well, a Bhoy can dream…”
Celtic & Me: Confessions from the Jungle (Black & White Publishing) is a warts and all telling of how Dominik’s own spectacular ability to hit the self-destruct button in his own life and media career reflected his journey from child Rangers supporter to being one of the most high-profile Celtic fans in Scotland, and the price he and his family paid for this.
Celtic & Me: Confessions from the Jungle by Dominik Diamond is published on Thursday 26th August 2010. For further information or to arrange an interview, please contact Alison McBride at Black & White Publishing: firstname.lastname@example.org or 0131 625 4500.
