BiogLeft-half Billy Price was a £1,000 purchase from Falkirk in July 1961.
An excellent reader of the game Price was a cool and collected player who was regarded as someone who had a calming influence on those around him. Played in the team that faced Real Madrid in 1962.
Apparently he inspired a Celtic chant of "Cel-tic! Cel-tic! Cha-Cha-Cha!" for the time.
Sadly had the ignominy to play in the demoralising cup defeats of Aug 1963 (league cup v Rangers) and Scottish Cup finals 1963 also.
He played 74 times and scored three goals for the Bhoys after making his debut in a 2-2 League Cup draw on August 19th 1961 at Hibernian.
He was released by Celtic in April 1964 and joined Berwick Rangers soon afterwards.
Note: He is one of a handful of Scottish footballers that have scored three penalties in one match; he achieved this feat in a game for his side Falkirk against Hamilton
