Description

Island Book Trust, 2013. Hardback.

Variously described as being 'among the 20 greatest Celtic players of all time' and 'the finest all-round player I've ever seen,' this is the untold story of Malcolm 'Malky' MacDonald's rise from impoverished roots in South Uist and Garngad to become one of the most significant players in the history of Celtic Football Club. A key member of the 'Golden Team' which lifted the Empire Exhibition Trophy in Celtic's Golden Jubilee season in 1938, Malky played every outfield position bar goalkeeper for the Hoops and went on to enjoy a distinguished career as manager of Kilmarnock (twice), Brentford and briefly Scotland. From humble roots in the Western Isles, this biography tells the story of one of Scottish football's Forgotten Stars who was deemed good enough to grace any Celtic side, including Jock Stein's famous Lisbon Lions.
