HOMECOMING KING: Marshall back at Celtic Park representing Scotland in 2014

DAVID MARSHALL used to wake up in a cold sweat, fearing he'd make the Old Firm mistake that would leave his whole family devastated.

The Scotland keeper grew up as a Celtic player before leaving his boyhood heroes to forge what has become a stellar career in English football nine years ago.

Undefined Text Variable [~COMPANYNAME~] director Marsh, now settling in back in the Premier League with his new club Hull City, played in five Glasgow derbies in his time as a Hoops star.
