Alec Thomson

Celtic hero Alec Thomson was born in Buckhaven, Fife on 14 June 1902, and passed away on 12 November 1975, aged 73.

Thomson signed for the Hoops from Wellesley Juniors in 1922 and would go to make 451 appearances until he departed the club 12 years later for Dunfermline.

He found the net 101 times during this period, making him part of a select band of Celtic players to have scored over a century of goals for the club.

Boasting excellent control, passing ability and vision, he was also a regular source of supply for the likes of Jimmy McGrory, something acknowledged by the goalscoring great himself.

Although his achievements were eclipsed by more celebrated Celtic contemporaries like McGrory and Patsy Gallacher, he was certainly a talented individual and one valued by manager Willie Maley, a fact indicated by the amount of games he played for the club.
