    “I was a Celtic supporter, a Celtic player, it’s been my life... I’ve really enjoyed my life, when I look back I couldn’t ask for any more.“
    John Clark (2014)

    He was a constant in the side, and played a total of 140 consecutive matches between April 1965 and September 1967. So he was ever present in all the matches throughout the high-mark season of 1966-67. Only Tommy Gemmell was ever-present in that glorious season too.


    "Only Willie Maley has given more years to Celtic in terms of length of service. A truly remarkable Celtic man whom more should recognise for all the time and effort he has put into the club without asking for anything in return."

    Along with Big Billy, John Clark was my favourite player when I was young. I still tell the tale of him patting me on the head when my father took me up to get autographs.
