Football Player; With blistering pace and a high level of fitness Bobby Lennox was a constant menace to opponents and he had an eye for goal scoring 273 goals in 571 appearances for Celtic. He remains Celtic’s highest goalscorer of the post Second World War era and overall is the second highest in the club’s history. Lennox was a member of the famous “Lisbon Lions” side which won the European Cup in 1967 and along with Jimmy Johnstone he gave the Inter Milan defence a torrid time in the final. Later that year he scored the only goal of the game against Real Madrid at Bernabeu Stadium when Celtic took part in a prestigious testimonial match for Alfredo Di Stefano.
Lennox also played in the European Cup Final of 1970 and was a mainstay during the club’s nine in a row era winning 10 League titles, eight Scottish Cups and four League Cups. Bobby was capped 10 times for Scotland and scored one of the goals in the famous 3-2 victory over England in 1967.
