Tommy Gemmell scored perhaps the most significant goal in the history of Celtic FC on that beautifully sunny day in Lisbon on 25th May 1967. Here in his final book Tommy looks back with Alex Gordon, on a lifetime in the game and selects the players he rates as the best he’s played with or watched.
Tommy recalls in a chapter from his first book from 1968, called The Big Shot, the events in South America when Celtic participated in the Inter-Continental Cup against Racing Club of Argentina.
From the beauty of Celtic’s attacking play in Lisbon to the farce of facing these cheats from Argentina - Tommy tells us about every kick, and not just of the ball!
This emotional book concludes with Tommy answering questions from Celtic supporters on his career at Celtic. All The Best is a book that every Celtic supporter will want to own. Lisbon Lion, Celtic legend and the man who scored for Celtic in not one but two European Cup Finals – no wonder he was called The Big Shot!
