The Realist

Tommy Gemmell.

Recommended Posts

The Lisbon Lion. Died today.


There was a fantastic Tommy Gemmell moment when Celtic were playing Racing Club of Buenos Aires in the World Club Championship. The game had degenerated into a series of running feuds and punch ups. During one stoppage when the referee was surrounded by players arguing about something or other, Gemmell went prowling around the back of the melee, looking to single out one particular Argie who he promptly decked with a crisp right hander, the bloke was knocked out cold. Gemmell thought he'd got away with it because the ref and linesmen were distracted, but unfortunately the cameras were following him and it was seen all over the world. The Argie bloke learned a valuable lesson that night - don't feck with a bloke who grew up in the shadow of the Motherwell steelworks.
