Over the next few weeks, the Celtic View will look at our 21 greatest goalscorers, which includes our current No.9, Leigh Griffiths, looking briefly at the careers of the men occupying the top scoring spots.

Today we feature Bobby Lennox, one of the legendary Lisbon Lions who won the European Cup in 1967. He scored 277 goals for the green and white Hoops, a total that would no doubt have been even higher if not for the offside flag!

Bobby Lennox
Appearances: 586
Goals: 277
Debut: Celtic 2-1 Dundee; 03/03/1962

Bobby Lennox will forever be remembered as a Lisbon Lion with an eye for goal. He would find the net 277 times for the Celts, second only to Jimmy McGrory in the scoring charts.

The arrival of Jock Stein as manager in 1965 changed the fortunes of both Lennox and the club, with the left-winger appearing in two European finals for the Bhoys. Affectionately known as ‘the outsider’ by his fellow Lions due to his Ayrshire roots, Lennox would eventually leave Celtic having collected 11 Scottish League medals, eight Scottish Cup medals and, of course, one European Cup.

The great Bobby Charlton would pay him the ultimate tribute when he said, ‘If I'd had Lennox in my team, I could have played forever.’

Tomorrow: Henrik Larsson
