9781905156047: Jock Stein: The Definitive Biography

Archie Macpherson's bestselling 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 the 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.'
