BiogPromising midfielder John Paul McBride was a Scotland Under 21 international who had impressed at youth and reserve level.
The teenager made his first team debut as a substitute on August 15th 1996 in a league clash with Raith at Parkhead which the Celts won 4-1. Over the next couple of seasons a sparse few appearances were made by McBride as he failed to force himself into the first team picture. In December 1998 he talked of needing to leave Celtic in order to get a game. The club stated he could go on loan if he signed a new 3-year deal.
He was put on the transfer list and left the club in the summer of 1999 to St Johnstone for a reported £200,000 [BBC Report].
