The mural is proposed for the gable of a house on Erskine Place which formed part of the Army Barracks where Celtic's first Manager was born in 1868.

The 5 x 2.5 metre mural will contain Maley's quote "My love for Celtic has been a craze" Without it my existence would be empty indeed."

Willie's father and mother lived in the Barracks in Newry with his father based there as a Sergeant.

In an incredible 43 years as manager Willie Maley led Celtic to 16 league championships and 14 Scottish cups.
