Ultimate XI: Vote for Celtic’s best left-back since Lisbon

Following on from the one and only Tommy Gemmell was never going to be easy – how many left-back’s have scored in two European Cup Finals?

In recent times it has become a real problem creating competition in that position, with Lee Naylor and Emilio Izaguirre virtually unchallenged.

Following on from Gemmell for a number of seasons was Jim Brogan, a fantastic club man caught between the Kelly Kids and the Quality Street Gang.

In character, not many will get close to the commitment of Anton Rogan and Tosh McKinlay who both enjoyed the successes that any fan given a chance dreams about.

In place right now, the club has possibly the biggest defensive talent to emerge in decades with the signs being that Kieran Tierney could be in place for as long as he wishes.

The left-back position tends to be one of the least fashionable in the team but in the spirit of Gemmell, it will always hold a special place in the affection of Celtic fans who watched or heard about the antics of one of Jock Stein’s favourites.

But who was the best Celtic left-back since Lisbon? We’ve picked five candidates for you to consider. Cast your vote on the final page…
