 Billy McPhail
Former Celtic Football Player. 

Billy McPhail was born 2 February 1928. At the age of 28, he was signed by Celtic for whom he played for just over a season before injury permanently ended his playing career. My dad had a great respect for all his fellow players, albeit Celtic or Rangers. He was a true gentleman on the pitch and off the pitch. Bob Crampsey  a well known football writer often wrote of my dad as the "Dartanian of Scottish Football". As he had such grace on the football pitch especially as he flew through the air heading the ball.

In the 50's the  footballs were made of leather thus when wet they were extremely heavy. Murdo Mcleod Ex Celtic, once took part in a TV documentary which illustrated the effects of such a ball at various speeds, the effects were quite alarming.

Despite the short time that Billy played, it was at Celtic that he he found most fame particularly after scoring a hat-trick in the 1957 League Cup Final.

Billy to walk for miles and claimed that this is what kept him fit.

Sadly he died of Alzheimer's Disease, it was never proven that the many knocks on his head from heading the ball contributed to him developing this terrible disease. What do you think?

My thanks go to Jane Franchi  of the BBC and Murdo Mcleod ex Celtic for trying to bring to light the dangers of heading a an old fashioned heavy leather ball. 


Hoops bid farewell to hat-trick legend Billy
News of the World (London, England)
April 6, 2003

CELTIC legend Billy McPhail has died in hospital after a long battle with illness.
The former Parkhead star, 75, died on Friday night at Glasgow's Canniesburn Hospital.

The striker become a Hoops hero when he scored a hat-trick during Celtic's 7-1 win over Rangers in the 1957 League Cup final. Billy and his team-mates -including Bobby Evans, Bertie Peacock, Willie Fernie and Charlie Tully -were immortalised in poems and songs written about the day by ecstatic Celtic fans.

The star player joined the Celts in 1956 and also played for Clyde and Queen's Park in a career spanning 17 years.

He was widely known for his Ronald Colman-style moustache.

In 1998 he launched a legal battle to claim benefits for the dementia he said was caused by heading leather balls.

A benefits appeal tribunal ruled against him.
