John Clark (footballer, born 1941) Wikipedia
John Clark (born 13 March 1941) is a former Scottish international footballer and member of the Celtic team nicknamed the Lisbon Lions.
Born in Chapelhall, Lanarkshire, he was part of the Celtic team that won the European Cup in 1967. Clark is perhaps the most unheralded player among the Lisbon Lions team. His undramatic style of team play in sweeping up beside fellow centre back, Billy McNeil, was integral to the success of the team. His role as Celtic's sweeper earned him the nickname "The Brush."
Clark earned four caps for Scotland all in his time with Celtic.
He left Celtic for Morton in 1971, where he retired from playing two years later.
Clark enjoyed a managerial career with Cowdenbeath, Stranraer and Clyde in the 1980s and early 90s.
His son Martin also became a professional footballer, with Clyde, Nottingham Forest and Partick Thistle in the 1990s.
John Clark is currently employed by Celtic as their kit man, a position he has held for two decades - making him the second-longest ever serving Celt, after Willie Maley.
