 Jimmy McGrory

(1904-1982)
Association Football

Inducted in 2004

With more than 500 goals for Celtic to his name - a massive 397 of those in 378 League games - it's little wonder that legendary ace Jimmy McGrory remains, unequivocally, the greatest goal scorer in the Club's history. In one match alone he scored eight goals against Dunfermline; in another, against Motherwell, he scored the fastest ever league hat-trick in just three minutes. McGrory's passion for the Club continued long after his playing days were over - as manager of Celtic for twenty years between 1945 and 1965, and in Public Relations until his death in 1982.
