This definitive football book is being re-published to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the appointment of Jock Stein as Celtic's legendary manager. Archie Macpherson's critically acclaimed and best-selling biography reappraises Jock Stein's career and looks closely at the personality of the man whose shrewdness and cunning stamped him eventually with greatness. In examining the strengths and weaknesses of this major figure, Macpherson's compelling narrative will nevertheless lead no-one to doubt the sincerity of Bill Shankly's ultimate accolade to Stein in 1967: 'John, you are immortal now.'
