Written by Willie Wallace



Join Willie Wallace on a journey of a lifetime. And a trip it has been, as you’ll find out in Heart of a Lion.

This is Willie’s own story, from boyhood in Kirkintilloch, to the life of a professional footballer criss-crossing Scotland and Europe as part of the all-conquering Celtic squad of the late 1960s, to the decision to make a post-retirement home under the warm Australian sun.

While there are plenty of football recollections to relish, Heart of a Lion is about much more: it is about Willie’s devotion to his family; it is about the irrepressible enjoyment of life that allows him to find humour in almost any situation and it is about his special relationship with – and respect for – the Celtic fans.

Scotland has had two famous men named William Wallace. Heart of a Lion reveals the journey of today’s Wallace to be no less colourful, courageous and loyal than his predecessor!
