John Fallon debut.

John spent 12 years at Celtic, much of the time playing second-fiddle to Frank Haffey, Roninie Simpson and Evan Williams but still managed to win two League Championships, two Scotish Cups and two League Cups. He was in the team that played in Celtic's first ever European match against Valencia in 1962. Other highlights were playing in both legs of the European Cup Winner Cup semi-final in 1964 and the 4-0 drubbing of Rangers in the 1969 Scottish Cup final. John still follows Celtic home and away (as far as we know, he is the only ex-Celtic player that does this.)
