The autobiography of Celtic's greatest hero, the captain of their 1967 European Cup-winning side
From 1958-75 Billy McNeill was at the heart of everything Celtic did. An uncompromising but fair centre half, he captained the club for twelve hugely successful years. Later in his life he returned for two more periods as Celtic manager, winning the undying support of the club's legion of fans for his complete commitment to the cause. In this remarkable autobiography, he recalls the glory days of the Lisbon Lions alongside Bobby Lennox and Jimmy Johnstone; playing for Scotland with Billy Bremner and Denis Law; coming to England as a manager; and reveals just how good a babysitter Kenny Dalglish was. Told with great humour and intelligence, this is a fascinating story from one of Scotland's greatest heroes.

Much has been written about the Lisbon Lions' captain, but this tome wins in its description of McNeill's complex relationship with Jock Stein and his pain at being sacked by Celtic in 1991. - Scotland On Sunday
