Description

Alex Montgomery's acclaimed biography brings O'Neill's story right up to date with a look at what has kept him motivated at Celtic during the past twelve months and deals with every aspect of his life and remarkable career from the early days as a player in Northern Ireland to his joining the tyrannical Brian Clough at Nottingham Forest. From non-league Grantham Town via Shepshed Dynamo and Wycombe Wanderers, to Norwich City, Leicester City and Celtic, where he broke the Rangers monopoly of Scottish football and resurrected Celtic's ambitions in Europe, the book chronicles O'Neill's managerial triumphs. Montgomery offers a rare insight into the beliefs, the lifestyle, the ambitions, hopes and fears of a private and complex football man.show more
