Players nicknames and their origins


Well-known member
Always wondered about Paul McStay's nickname of 'Hat' never been properly explained. Does anyone know the real background of that? ๐Ÿ€
Nicknames for players from team mates and their origins if possible.,,.e.g. Ronnie Simpson was father because of his age when he played for us. Could be a good thread,.....,..anyone else?
One of my favourite nicknames has to be The Black Flash a.k.a Gil Heron who was the first black player to play for Celtic in the 50s and was the father of the famous musician sadly now deceased Gil Scott Heron what a superb nickname HH
