Bobby Hannah signed for the Bhoys from Celtic Boys Club in July 1974 and was regarded as an excellent prospect by Jock Stein and others who had seen his performances at youth level.
The energetic inside forward made his debut as a substitute for fellow protégé Tommy Burns in a 5-3 league win at Ayr United on May 1st 1976. Both he and Tommy had been farmed out the previous season to the Rhodesian team Salisbury Callies, run by ex-pat Danny Murphy.
But despite his early promise Hannah didn’t make anything like the expected impact and after a total of just three competitive appearances he was released by the Hoops in April 1977.
"An A-Z of the Celts" by McBride et al put it succinctly by questioning:
"What happened thereafter [after Celtic tours] to all Bobby's fine promise is a mystery".
