A Scottish Football Hall of Fame

by Cairney, John

Condition: Very Good/Very Good

Mainstream Pubishing, 1998. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 6.5" x 9.5. H/B 254 pages, condition is very good. Who has ever seen Jim Baxter at his best and can forget it? Or Denis Law flying high, Gordon Smith full of grace on the wing or Jinky Johnstone at his cheekiest? Football memories are made of moments like these. And they are all in A Scottish Football Hall of Fame along with profiles of one hundred of the best players in the country's colourful history - players like Bobby Templeton, Alan Morton, Jimmy Delaney, Kenny Dalglish and Ally McCoist to name only a few of the greats who inspired whole generations of Scotland supporters. Their stories, as told here, are thrilling, tragic and funny. Men who were once household names are captured in their sporting immortality and introduced to a new generation who never saw them play. But this volume is more than a mere catalogue of players who have worn the dark blue of Scotland. It is an original overview of the beautiful game as it developed north of the Tweed by a man who still remembers seeing his first Hampden game at the age of seven. John Cairney's deep and enduring love of football shines through on every page as he recounts one illuminating anecdote after another. As he says in the introduction to this book: 'Football is more than a mere game in Scotland, it is a part of the Scottish psyche.'
