Tommy Gemmell

He will forever be immortalised for one special moment in Lisbon for scoring the goal that helped us to win the European Cup in 1967.

The strange thing is that he was not a prolific goal scorer, many of his goals actually came from the penalty spot (64 goals in 418 appearances for Celtic, 31 of those from the penalty spot).

A fearless no nonsense player, he was the most adept to take the penalties, and probably his vanity meant he had the over-confidence to fearlessly take them.

It worked, he only missed three out of 34!
