Another member of the famous Quality Street Gang, Kenny Dalglish is one of the most talented players Scotland has ever produced and certainly one of the best to have worn the green and white Hoops. He made his Celtic debut as a 17-year-old, though it would be another three seasons before he broke into the first-team, and that's where he would stay until he left for Liverpool in 1977. It was in his last season that Dalglish helped Celtic win the Double, part of a world-class triumvirate alongside Danny McGrain and Pat Stanton, and great things were expected the following season before Dalglish left and the other two players suffered long-term injuries. But while Dalglish went on to star for Liverpool on the domestic and European stage, he did leave behind some great memories for the Celtic support, and was an integral part of the club as they secured nine-in-a-row in the early 1970s.
