The scorer of the most important goal in Scottish football history. Chalmers was the man who put away the winning goal in the 1967 European Cup final to take the trophy back to Glasgow, making history as the first British team to lift the cup. While he is mostly remembered for his goal in Lisbon, Stevie Chalmers was a very good striker, and the 4th top scorer in Celtic history, totalling 236 goals in 431 games. He was quick and opportunistic, with lightning fast reactions in the box, and a deadly finisher with both his head and his feet. While not particularly gifted with the ball at his feet, his movement often left him with only the goalkeeper to beat, and finishing was only a formality to him. He was also a total team player, dragging the opposition everywhere, and would happily run for 90 minutes doing the unselfish duties that gave his teammates the opportunity to shine. Sometimes deployed as a right winger, he had good pace and could beat defenders with his acceleration. In addition to his famous goal in 1967, he is also remembered for scoring in a 1-1 draw with Brazil while playing for Scotland, swapping shirts with an impressed Pelé after the match.

He retired at the age of 39 in 1975, and died in April 2019, a week after the death of Billy McNeill, captain of the Lisbon Lions. A tragic week for all Celtic fans, but stories of both legends will be passed down for generations to come.
