Jimmy McMenemy was one of Celtic and Scotland's truly great players. His contribution to the Celtic cause as a player was matched by his contribution in the late 1930s as the trainer of the side who won the all-British Empire Exhibition Trophy of 1937.

He played for Celtic for almost twenty years at a time when Celtic were at the top of Scottish and world football, and he was the man that made it all happen for them.

He was generally agreed to be the star of the team that won six League Championships in a row from 1905 until 1910. He also played his part in quite a few triumphs for Scotland, notably against England in 1910 and 1914.

He remains without doubt one of the great characters of early 20th century Scottish football, and his story deserves to be told.
