Bobby Lennox debut.
Bobby (nicknamed the "buzz-bomb" or "Lemon") played for Celtic until 1980 (except for a period between March and August 1978 when he starred in the USA for a brand new club called Houston Hurricane in Texas). He had an incredible career at Celtic winning a record 11 League Championships and 8 Scottish Cups. He also played in two European Cup finals - winning in 1967 and was runner-up in 1970. Bobby scored 297 competitive goals for celtic. He was capped 10 times for Scotland (including the 3-2 victory against World champions England in 1967) and was honoured by H. M. the Queen with an M.B.E. in July 1981. He was 36 years old when, as the last of the Lisbon Lions, he was forced to retire from playing through injury and immediately took over as coach of the Celtic Reserve team under manager Billy McNeill.
