Back cover copy

Tommy Gemmell is pure Celtic - fronting an era of football that was ripe with politics, religion and communtity as well as 70-mile-per-hour shots. One of the legendary Lisbon Lions of 1967, his blistering equaliser and final pass brought the European Cup to British shores for the first time in history. The real legend behind Tommy Gemmell, however is the exciting extravert who won Celtic fans young and old with his mischievous wit and impressively lavish lifestyle. Gemmell was a true 60s and 70s icon, forever in trouble with pernickety referees and sparking lengthy rows with the SFA and with Jock Stein. In Tommy Gemmell: Lion Heart he sheds light on his career - from his earliest days of growing up in Lanarkshire, to his award-winning decade at Celtic, and through his work as a player and manager at Dundee and Albion Rovers. Always honest, Tommy Gemmell is not afraid to look back at Celtic's dominance in the 60s and offers his trademark forthright views on Celtic's progress and the game today.show more
