Willie Wallace: A Lisbon Lion and former Scotland international, Willie Wallace developed a reputation as a top class goal poacher. The surprise was that his destination wasn’t boyhood favourites Rangers but their nemesis Celtic, for whom Jock Stein paid £30,000 to secure his services. Within 6 months he was to attain Scottish footballing immortality, as one of the “Lisbon Lions”, the famous Celtic team who won the European Cup in 1967.
Jim Craig: Jim Craig is a Scottish former footballer, who played as a right back. Most closely associated with Celtic, he was a member of their Lisbon Lions side which won the 1967 European Cup. Craig’s abilities and style of play matched manager Jock Stein’s tactical philosophy and he soon displaced Willie O’Neill and Ian Young as Celtic’s regular right back.

Mick Channon: Channon made his debut for Southampton as a 17-year-old in 1966, scoring in a match against Bristol City. Within three years he had established himself as the club’s main goal scorer.
He played a big part in the FA Cup final win against Manchester United. Although Southampton were a lower division side, they were considerably more experienced than Manchester United’s youthful team. Southampton won 1–0, with Channon playing a part in the winning goal scored late in the game by Bobby Stokes. It was his first domestic honour in the game.
Matt Le Tissier: Le Tissier spent his entire professional club career with Southampton and won eight caps for the England national team. His loyalty garnered special affection from Southampton’s fans who nicknamed him “Le God”. A creative attacking midfielder, with exceptional technical skills, Le Tissier is the second-highest ever scorer for Southampton behind Mick Channon and was voted PFA Young Player of the Year in 1990.
