The Celtic legend and Lisbon Lion tells his full story at last
One of Britain s greatest ever footballers, Bobby Lennox epitomises an era in which Celtic were the best and most successful football club in the UK. In May 1967, he and his fellow Lisbon Lions achieved footballing immortality when they lifted the European Cup the first British side to do so. Lennox s 300 goals for Celtic and Scotland make him the second-highest goalscorer in Celtic s history and the highest since the Second World War. With the Scottish national side, Lennox famously scored the second goal in Scotland s stunning 3-2 victory over England at Wembley in 1967, when the Scots became the first country to defeat the then world champions.
In this definitive autobiography, Lennox recounts with his famous dry wit and openness, his part in these extraordinary achievements, revealing aspects of his career which, until now, he has never previously made public.
