A player of immense talent, Danny McGrain also showed tremendous courage throughout his life and career to come back from a number of serious injuries, and also to continue to play at the highest level after being diagnosed with diabetes. McGrain was one of the famous Quality Street Gang, a group of talented youngsters who came through the ranks at Celtic in the late 1960s and early '70s, and made his debut in 1970, having originally signed for the club just before the Lisbon triumph. McGrain remained at Celtic Park until 1987 and was part of many triumphs, along the way, including the nine-in-a-row era, the 1977 Double, the 1979 league triumph when '10 men won the League', the 1980 Scottish Cup final and the dramatic 1986 league championship clincher at Love Street. McGrain remains at Celtic to this day, in charge of the Development Squad.
