Davie Hay

Celtic hero Davie Hay was born in Paisley, Scotland on 29 January 1948 (age 72).

After completing his secondary education at St Mirin’s Academy in Paisley, Hay signed for Celtic in 1966. He became one of the “Quality Street Kids” reserve team which eventually took the places of the ageing Lisbon Lions. He made his league debut on 6 March 1968 against Aberdeen going on to make 230 appearances for Celtic scoring 12 goals, winning 5 League Championships, 3 Scottish Cups and 1 League Cup. After playing for Scotland in the 1974 World Cup in West Germany, he was transferred to Chelsea following a dispute with Celtic. In 1979 a serious knee injury forced him to retire from the game as a player. He had also suffered problems with a detached retina and eventually lost full vision in his right eye. He won a total 27 caps for Scotland.
