Johan Mjallby

Johan Mjallby was born in Stockholm on 9 February 1971 (age 49).

His solid performances for club and country caught the eye of Jozef Venglos, coach at Celtic. In November 1998 Johan Mjällby signed for Celtic for a fee of around £1,200,000 and was given 35 as his squad number, which he retained throughout his time at Celtic. He made his debut for the Scottish side in the famous 5–1 victory over arch rivals Rangers in the role of central defence. The rest of season 1998/99 saw Johan play increasingly in the role of central defence, a role in which he grew to prominence.
