Number of league titles won by Paul McStay?

Post by ros_brodie » Tue Jul 17, 2007 8:19 am

Hi there

Can anyone confirm for me how many League titles Paul McStay won with Celtic? One source says two - 1985-86 and 1987-88, but another source says three, perhaps including 1981-82, when he made 10 appearances.

Thanks,
Ros.

Only 13 players made more league appearances for Celtic in 1981-82 so it's possible he may have won a medal despite his low number of appearances though I have always thought he won just the two. There is a thread here which discusses the allocation of medals.

The book 'Essential History of Celtic' credits P McStay with 2 League Champions medals. This suggests his seven starts and 3 sub appearances in 81-2 weren't enough to merit a medal.

Thanks for that Fatbhoy and welcome to the forum. I've fixed the broken link to the original discussion in the post preceding yours.

:) Cheers Scottish - joined a few months back after purchasing 'The Roar of the Crowd' then went into close season shut down. Some fascinating stuff!
