Sean Fallon is one of British soccer’s great untold stories. For the first time, the Celtic legend speaks candidly about his time as Jock’s Stein’s right-hand man and how together they ruled Scottish soccer and conquered Europe with the Lisbon Lions. We learn how the Irishman shaped Celtic’s glory era of the 1960s and 1970s by signing not only the majority of the Lions, but also players such as Kenny Dalglish, Danny McGrain, Lou Macari, George Connelly, Davie Hay, Pat Bonner, and Paul McStay. Fallon also reflects on his stellar playing career including the 7-1 League Cup final win over Rangers in 1957, the lean years of the early 1960s, and the uneasy final stages of his and Stein’s tenure at Celtic. His own, oft-underestimated role as talent spotter and tactician is illuminated by revealing interviews with the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson, former Celtic boss Neil Lennon, chief executive Peter Lawwell, Stein’s son George, Sean’s family, and former colleagues.

About the Author:

Stephen Sullivan has been an editor with FIFA.com since 2006. He previously spent seven years writing for the Celtic website and club magazine, and it was during this time that he first met and interviewed Sean Fallon. This, his first book, is based on interviews with Sean—plus family, friends, and former colleagues—in the final year of the Celtic legend’s life.

Review:

"A great read. I could relate every step of the way." —Sir Alex Ferguson, former Machester United manager

"Magnificent . . . an important and eloquent account of arguably the greatest talent-spotter in British football history." —Times

"A remarkable redefining of a true giant of the game." —Daily Mail

"If you are going to read one football book this year, this should be it. Beautifully written, an incredible story." —Daily Record

"An affectionate yet also well-balanced biography of a man who was an integral element of Jock Stein's success as Celtic manager." —Scotsman
