Aidan Donaldson's biography is the first definitive account of McCluskey's hugely successful professional career over two decades as a striker.

Playing in the Hoops for eight years, George scored 54 goals in this time. He also changed the entire game in favour of Celtic over and over again. Later going on to play for Hibernian - as well as Leeds, Hamilton, Kilmarnock and Clyde - he was the injured party in one of the most scandalous tackles in football history. A truly celtic minded man and player, George McCluskey embodies the Celtic spirit. In football biographies the reader often only sees the player and not the real person. I was extremely fortunate to play football for the club I supported my entire life ... Coming from a Celtic minded family and community it has been an absolute privilege to have played for Celtic on so many occasions and to have shared in their joy, hopes and dreams - as well as in their disappointments.' George McCluskey Everyone who loves Celtic and the beautiful game will love this book.
