The Mighty Quinn(U4099)
More about me:
Have been supporting and watching Celtic for well over 50 years now. I'm that old I saw Lisbon. Still got a' ma hair and teeth though. Young at heart and love walking and climbing in Scotland , especially in the West Highlands and islands.
My hero is my Da. He was the best guy I ever knew. A lifelong Celtic fan who ran up a beach under fire on D Day June 1944.
My all time football hero is a player I never saw - Celtic's first goal scoring machine Jimmy 'The Mighty' Quinn. Came on as a sub when Celtic were 2-0 down in the Scottish Cup Final. Scored a hat trick and we lifted the Cup. He was a quiet spoken and modest man. When he hung up his boots he went back to his first job - down the coal mines.
Him and his like at every Club could show some of these present day overpaid primadonnas a thing or two about life and values.
