Greatest Celtic Players Ever

RIP Tommy Gemmell. A Lisbon Lion and one of the best ever to play for Celtic. Feel free to disagree.

  1. Jimmy Johnstone – “Wee Jinky” was one of the best wingers ever. Only 5’4″ but he was brilliant in the 1967 European Cup Final. Voted by fans as the greatest ever.
  2. Jimmy McGrory – not only Celtic’s highest goal scorer but he holds the British record. 538 goals in 534 games.
  3. Billy McNeill – played 790 times for Celtic. Their greatest captain whose finest hour was lifting the European Cup.
  4. Danny McGrain – over 650 appearances, a quality full back.
  5. Paul McStay – “The Maestro” was a one club midfield general.
  6. Bobby Lennox – Celtic’s second highest goal scorer. Incredibly quick.
  7. Henrik Larsson – the best recent player. If he had stayed longer he would have been higher on the list.
  8. Kenny Dalglish – Scotland’s best ever player started with Celtic. He would be top of the list if he played at Parkhead throughout his career.
  9. Tommy Gemmell – a superb attacking full back. Scored the equalising goal in Lisbon which changed the game.
  10. Charlie Tully – a supremely skillful winger.

Something for Celtic fans to get all misty eyed about here
