BiogLinwood-born John McGrory signed for Celtic in May 1946 from Maryhill Harp.
A centre half Johnny made his Bhoys debut in a 3-6 home defeat to Clyde in the League Cup on October 9th 1948. A strong and committed player he was let down at times by a lack of pace but he read the game well and latterly was used as much in attack by Celtic as in defence.
Seemed to have a great love from the Scottish Cup scoring an incredible 8 goals in 11 games in the competition! In one match v Stirling he scored four times.
McGrory always played with great enthusiasm and with a smile on his face. He departed Parkhead in September 1953 after 58 appearances and 11 goals.
