BiogWillie McOustra was a lightening quick forward who was signed by Celtic from Ashfield in September 1899.
His competitive senior debut came in a 2-0 league victory at Queen's Park on September 8th 1900. His biggest asset was unquestionably his blistering pace and he was always prepared to work hard for his team. However, his speed was also a problem in that he had a tendency to over-run the problem, something that all great fast players to this day suffer from (e.g. Didier Agather is another example).
The inside forward was surprisingly sold to Manchester City in Feb 1902 after a dip in form. He was sold with Jimmy Drummond for "...enormous prices".
He made 30 appearances for the Bhoys and netted 9 goals.
He spent several years at City before moving on to Blackpool, Stenhousemuir and Alloa.
Willie served on the Western Front in the First World War and later helped out as an assistant to Jerry Reynolds as an odd job man at Celtic Park.
