English legend Bobby Charlton was one of his greatest admirers boldly stating that if he had someone like Lennox playing beside him then he could have gone on forever and also as “one of the best strikers that I have ever seen”. High praise indeed whilst the legendary Di Stefano also picked him out for high praise.
In total, he won 11 League medals, 8 Scottish Cup medals, and 5 League Cup medals as well as his European Cup medal, the highest medal haul for a Celtic player whilst at the club (higher even than Billy McNeill’s), and has the accolade of being one of a small band of Scotsmen to have played in two European Cup finals.
