Willie Wallace joined Celtic in 1966 from Hearts for £30,000. Within 6 months he was to attain Scottish footballing immortality, as one of the Lisbon Lions, the famous Celtic team who won the European Cup in 1967. He also won the league championship in each season he was at the club, the Scottish Cup in 1967, 1969 and 1971 and the League Cup in 1968 and 1969 during an era widely considered the greatest in the club’s history. In total, he scored 135 goals in 234 games. The only blemish was a disappointing 2–1 defeat to Feyenoord in the 1970 European Cup final.
