Jock Stein
Birth: Oct. 5, 1922
South Lanarkshire, Scotland
Death: Sep. 10, 1985
Cardiff, Wales

Legendary Scottish football (soccer) manager. Born John Stein, Jock Stein was one of the most successful football managers Scotland has ever produced. As a player he was signed by Glasgow Celtic in 1951 but due to an ankle injury his career was prematurely ended. Stein's first managerial post was with struggling Dunfermline F.C. Facing near certain relegation Dunfermline needed six wins out of six to avoid the drop- a feat they achieved under Steins guidance. Steins greatest moments were to come when he was offered the Celtic managerial post. He led Celtic to league victoy nine times in his first nine years there and famously led them to European cup glory against Inter Milan in Lisbon. Under his leadership, Celtic also won 10 League Championships (nine during his first nine years in charge), 8 Scottish Cups and 6 League Cups. In 1978 he became manager of the Scotland team where he restored credibility in the side. Scotland was stunned when Stein died suddenly of a heart attack during an international match against Wales in 1985. (bio by: Kieran Smith)

50 years ago today Mr Stein, you and your Bhoys did Scotland proud by being the first British football team to win the European Cup. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. God Bless you all.
