I was looking at the honours the 5 players who've won 9 titles in a row for Celtic.
Jimmy Johnstone won 19 honours and he also missed out on a few finals to add to his tally.
James Forrest has also won 19 honours and he missed the Quadruple Treble final.
Scott Brown has won 22 honours with Celtic and he also won the league cup in 2007 as a Hibs player for a total of 23 honours.
Next in line is Big Billy McNeill who has also won 23 honours up until he retired after lifting the 1975 Scottish cup.
The player with the most honours for Celtic is Bobby 'Buzz Bomb' Lennox with a staggering 25.
I think he also missed a league cup final in which Celtic won.
I might take another couple of generations for another Celtic player to get near those totals.

Truly amazing careers Buzz from a few of our all time greats.
Especially when you consider that these players have won more trophies than some clubs.

That’s amazing when u think of some of the players in the epl who might be very wealthy but win zero honours. There’s some homework for you buzz, who’s the best player for us or anyone else who won nothing for whatever reason.

The one that sticks out for me is Paul Elliott.
He never won a trophy as a player.
Paul played in England for various clubs before going to Italy.
He returned to play for Celtic and won the Scottish Players Player of the year.
Chelsea signed Elliott and he won their player of the year in his first season.
At the start of his second season he received a serious knee injury and he retired at the end of his Chelsea contract.
I interviewed Paul Elliott inside Celtic Park as part of a school project.
I didn’t like him because he was very arrogant.
Everything he said in interviews about Celtic, he was saying the opposite to me.
e. g he said every Derby in Italy was bigger than the Old Firm Derby.
He just talked constant nonsense.
I knew someone who was pals with Paul McStay’s dad and he said McStay didn’t like Elliott because he was telling the Celtic fans he was staying but in the dressing room he was insisting he was leaving.
The guy he just a liar.

Socrates, who played for Brazil at the 82 world cup must be a contender for the greatest player never to have won a major trophy.

Bobby Lennox missed the 1969 league cup final against St. Johnstone in a 1-0 victory. He had an ankle injury but was back playing the following week.
Stevie Chalmers broke his ankle in the final and he replaced by our only sub Jimmy Johnstone.
A few days before the final, Scotland lost 3-2 in Germany in a World Cup qualifier.
Jinky scored but Tommy Gemmell was sent off for kicking a German player in retaliation.
Jock Stein dropped Gemmell for the final by replacing him with a young Davie Hay.
Gemmell has raging and put in a transfer request.
Tommy later withdrew his transfer request after a meeting between himself and big Jock and the Celtic chairman Robert Kelly.
Bertie Auld scored the only goal in only 2 minutes to win Celtic our 5th consecutive league cup.

Buzz Bomb I was disappointed recently when I heard him speaking it was total and utter nonsense. Evidently not the sharpest tool in the shed. However for me with the possible exception of VVD although a totally different type of player with different strengths Paul Eliott is the best centre half I’ve seen at Celtic Park.

I remember Socrates in the 1982 World Cup. What a player.
He was a heavy smoker and drinker and he died at only 57 years old.
Socrates said he was an anti-athlete and you can take him as he is.

Will never forget Tam Gemmell chasing that German player and botting him up the bum because he tripped him in the act of shooting.
It brought the usual negative publicity for Celtic and he was given a 'low profile' by big Jock who didn't want it to affect the Final.

I remember Elliott picked up loads of yellow cards in his first season but he was a brilliant player.
A no nonsense centre half.
I went to interview Jackie but he pretended he couldn’t speak English and Elliott was landed with me. He was raging and that’s when he started playing up.
I also interviewed Allan Herron a top journalist from years ago and he was brilliant.
I spoke to him about football and Celtic for hours and he introduced me to Billy McPhail who scored a hat trick in the 7-1 victory against Rangers.
That was a brilliant day and experience.

13 Feb 2021 12:57:39
Did he score against us when we played them at the WC Buzz?

13 Feb 2021 13:10:18

That’s right I can’t remember how many but he picked up a ridiculous amount of yellow cards in his first dozen games or so and then settled down. He never lost a header in the box not as good maybe as VVD with the ball at his feet but absolutely dominant in the air.

13 Feb 2021 14:15:56
I thought he did also but he probably had a couple of assists because I can remember him, Zico and Falcao running riot.
Elliott had 14 yellow cards in his first season but I don’t think he had too many after that.

I’d have guessed it was double figures but was thinking it couldn’t be!
