An article in BwB on July 29 suggested Celtic did not field a non-Scot in their great nine-in-a-row run from 1966-74.
The ink was hardly dry on the page before Ian Selbie responded. He reckoned there could be at least one.
He opened: “I read your BwB pages in the Tele every week.
“Regarding no non-Scots playing for Celtic, the only player I can think of is the late Paul Wilson, who sadly passed away last year.
“Although he lived most of his life in Glasgow, he was born in Bangalore, India.”
A quick search of files revealed that Wilson, indeed, was born in India.
His Scottish father was stationed there with the Royal Air Force, where he met Wilson’s Dutch-Portuguese mother.
The family moved to Scotland when Wilson was just one.
Former Dundee West MP Jim McGovern put forward another few names.
He offered: “Celtic had a Danish goalkeeper Bent Martin, who later went to Dunfermline. He played one first-team game for Celtic, but it could have been a Glasgow Cup tie.
“That was at a time when that was still a tournament for first-team players.
“There was also a player called Steve Hancock, who was born in Sheffield.
“He played one first-team game, which was a European Cup away leg against Sliema Wanderers of Malta. Celtic won 2-1 on the night, 7-2 aggregate.”
