John 'Dixie' Deans

Read all the news about Celtic hero John 'Dixie' Deans. John 'Dixie' Deans was born in Johnstone on 30 July 1946 (age 72).

From The Celtic Wiki: Goal machine John ‘Dixie’ Deans would prove to be one of Jock Stein’s most astute signings. The Celtic manager caused a sensation in Scottish football when he signed the controversial Motherwell forward in October 1971 for £17.5k in the aftermath of the disastrous defeat to Partick Thistle in the League Cup Final. The robust and gutsy forward had earned himself a reputation as a troublemaker for his on-field antics with the Lanarkshire club and at the time of Stein’s surprise swoop Deans was serving a six week ban.
