PETER LATCHFORD

Once upon a time it was very rare to have a non-Scottish player in the Celtic side, with Latchford and Johannes Edvaldsson the only foreigners from the seventies.

Latchford arrived initially on loan from West Brom early in 1975 just as hopes of 10-in-a-row were fading, but he picked up a Scottish Cup winners medal in the 3-1 win over Airdrie.

The double winning season of 76/77 was possibly his best, with strong rumours that he was bound for Manchester United and Alan Rough coming in as his replacement.

As a member of that team, his place in the folklore of the club is assured, although he lost his place to Packie Bonner he remained at Celtic until 1987.

Peter played in 272 matches for Celtic.
