Willie Orr

Celtic hero Willie Orr was born in Shotts, Lanarkshire on 20 June 1873. Died 26 February 1946, aged 72

Willie Orr began his career at Airdrieonians before moving to Preston North End in 1894. It was at Celtic though where he made his name. He made his debut in a 4–1 victory over Hibernian in 1897 and helped lead Celtic to the Scottish title in his first season there. A strong, assured left-back, Orr’s influence as a leader shone after he became Celtic captain in 1902 and captained the club to 3 league titles and 2 Scottish cups, including a double in 1906–07.
