Looks like BBC Alba’s documentary about the life and times of Celtic’s greatest manager this coming Monday is going to be a tremendous watch. Alex O’Henley and the team travelled from Llanelli to Lisbon and many places in between following Jock’s trail from Burnbank to glory with Celtic and his ultimate death in the dug-out while Scotland manager.
The list of people interviewed is a virtual Who’s Who of Scottish football from the 60s and 70s: Danny McGrain, Gordon Strachan, John Clark, Graeme Souness, Pat Stanton, Alex Edwards, Jim Craig, Peter Cormack and Archie MacPherson among others
