Frank McLintock

Date of birth28 December 1939
Place of birthGlasgow
NationalityScottish
PositionDefender/Midfielder

The iconic captain of the 1971 double-winning team, signed from Leicester City as a wing-half in 1964, it wasn't until he was switched to central defence on the insistence of coach Don Howe that the best was seen of the archetypal Scot. His leadership qualities were exemplified in the final of the European Fairs Cup in 1970 when a 3-1 defeat in the first leg in Anderlecht was reversed by a 3-0 win at Highbury. Named Footballer of the Year in 1971, Frank was awarded the MBE in 1972.
