Patrick Gallacher

Read all the news about Celtic hero Patrick Gallacher. Patrick Gallacher was born in Milford, Donegal, Ireland on 16 March 1891. Died 17 June 1953, aged 62

Gallacher was quickly promoted to the Celtic first team and made his debut against St Mirren at Parkhead in November 1911. He was to overcome his supposed physical problems in the same way that Garrincha would in years to come. Within six months he secured his first winner’s medal scoring once in the 2–0 victory over Clyde in the 1912 Scottish Cup final. He went on to play for Celtic for 15 years from 1911 to 1926, featuring in 569 games in all competitions. In 464 games in major competitions Patsy scored 192 goals. Today he ranks as Celtic’s sixth highest goal scorer behind Jimmy McGrory, Bobby Lennox, Henrik Larsson, Stevie Chalmers and Jimmy Quinn. One of his most famous moments came in the 1925 ‘Patsy Gallacher’ Scottish Cup final against Dundee, when he barged from behind in a packed penalty area, and somersaulted over the goal line with the ball between his feet into the net for a goal.
