BiogSon of the all-time Celtic great Jimmy, John McMenemy was a solid if unspectacular performer for the Hoops.
An inside-right, he was signed in December 1925 from St Roch's. John made his competitive debut for the Hoops in a 4-1 league defeat at Falkirk on April 6th 1927.
A good passer of the ball he was viewed by some critics as being too slow and deliberate in his play to suit Celtic's more fast flowing style. He made a total of 16 appearances for the Bhoys and scored two goals.
He left Parkhead in October 1928 to join Motherwell where he would become a regular fixture and with even gained a sole Scotland international cap. His brother Harry McMenemy was actually chosen to play in this match, but had to pull out through injury, and John McMenemy took his place! Harry McMenemy was never capped for Scotland (Wales 3-2 Scotland 4th Oct 1933).
Success met him in a golden period for Motherwell, winning the League in 1932, although he also appeared in two Cup finals of 1931 and in 1933, however losing both to his old club Celtic.
