Jimmy Quinn

Celtic hero Jimmy Quinn was born in Croy, Lanarkshire on 8 July 1878, and passed away on 20 November 1945, aged 67.

Signed for Celtic by Willie Maley from junior club Smithston Albion in 1900, Quinn took several seasons to make his mark, playing at outside- then inside-left before being moved to centre. Like so many players of the time and since, he was a coal miner.

He scored 216 competitive goals in 331 appearances – 187 in the league (273 appearances) and 29 cup goals in 58 appearances, 7 or 8 of those goals in finals (1904, 08, 09, & 1911). He won six successive championship and five Scottish Cup medals with Celtic and was capped eleven times for Scotland, scoring seven times, including four out of five goals v Ireland in 1908. His strike rate of 0.65 – almost two goals every three games – is surpassed among Celtic goalscorers only by Jimmy McGrory, Henrik Larsson and Sandy McMahon. As a scorer of league goals, his total of 187 is surpassed only by McGrory’s.
