Celtic: Fans praise Jock Stein on anniversary of former manager’s appointment - Celtic

Celtic fans were praising Jock Stein on the anniversary of the legendary figure’s appointment as manager of the club.

On this day 55 years ago, Stein took over from Jim McGrory and went on to have a monumental impact for the Glasgow outfit. The Scotsman won a mammoth 509 games from 728 fixtures, losing a mere 102.

Supporters were left lavishing the figure with praise as they took to Twitter to celebrate the anniversary. Here is a selection of tweets from the Bhoys faithful:
