Description

Celtic legend Bertie Auld is one of the most controversial and colourful characters in Scottish football history. Over the passing decades, he has steadfastly refused to discuss his remarkable lifetime in the game - until now! Auld will lift the lid and reveal the secrets that will astonish supporters everywhere. He will tell of: his rise to the pinnacle of European soccer from the abject poverty of a childhood in war-torn Glasgow; the truth behind his return to Celtic and the man who really signed him; his unique and often-stormy relationship with Jock Stein; and how he got sent off in his international debut for Scotland.

It includes: how the Lisbon Lions beat Inter Milan in the European Cup Final in 1967 - without kicking a ball; the day he was sent off in the biggest game in Celtic's history - and refused to go; what really went wrong when favourites Celtic flopped in the 1970 European Final; the men he rated - and hated - in football; the Old Firm battles and what really happened during and after these confrontations; and his amazing times as a manager at Hibs, Partick Thistle, Hamilton and Dumbarton and his feuds with the chairmen.Bertie Auld's autobiography is every bit as explosive and volatile as the man himself. He never shirked a tackle as a player and there are still no holds barred long after the boots have been put away.It's the book everyone wanted and it's a sensational read.
