BiogKilmarnock-born Bobby Muir was a gifted outside-right who joined Celtic from Bristol Rovers in May 1903.
He made his competitive first team debut for the Bhoys in a 2-1 league win over Partick Thistle at Parkhead on August 15th 1903. That game is best remembered as being the occasion Celtic wore their now world famous green and white hoops for the very first time.
Muir was in great form during the 1904 Scottish Cup final when he helped Celtic defeat Rangers 3-2. He was said to be "the best man in his position since Neil McCallum... a bewilderer with lean and clever footwork".
However after just one season he was tempted back to England and joined Notts County in April 1904. He had hit seven goals in 25 appearances for the Celts.
He later moved to Canada, and met the Celtic team on tour in 1951 and wrote a piece for the Celtic Football Guide of 1951-52.
