Alan Sneddon

Full-back Alan Sneddon signed for Celtic in August 1977 from junior outfit Larkhall Thistle.
The Baillieston-born player was renowned for his excellent distribution and he made his debut in a Scottish Cup tie against Dundee at Parkhead and set up two goals in a 7-1 victory.
A regular in the side in the 1979-80 season he picked up a Scottish Cup winners medal after being part of the team that defeated Rangers 1-0 at Hampden.
He won a Championship winners medal the following season but was sold to Hibernian half-way through the campaign for £60,000 after losing his starting place to Mark Reid.
His move to the then First Division club allowed Sneddon to pick up two championship medals in the one season as he helped the Edinburgh side claim top spot in their division.
Sneddon proved to be a great buy for Hibs and was to be an Easter Road stalwart for 11 years.
