Two photographs of very talented Celtic centre-forwards at memorable moments in their lives.

The first shows the incomparable Jimmy McGrory nipping to score the only goal of the 1933 Scottish Cup final against Motherwell at Hampden. The watching Celts are Bertie Thomson ( left ) and Alec Thomson (right).

The second shot is of Billy McPhail slamming in the fourth goal in the 7-1 League Cup Final win against Rangers in 1957. The despairing Light Blues players on the goal-line are goalkeeper George Niven and right –back Bobby Shearer.

  1. Robert Austin Thomson “Bertie of celtic” was my great granda on my mothers side. Amazing to find pics are still poping up to this day. Every photo I have has come from the net. Godbless Celtic supporters everywhere. And thankyou for keeping grandas memory alive.
