Give Jock Stein a Knighthood.

This petition had 70 supporters

Jock Stein was a brilliant man who did things nobody thought he could. He won 9 consecutive league titles with Celtic, a Scottish record, and in the 66/67 season he led Celtic to the European Cup Final, which they won 2-1 over Inter Milan, which made Jock's side the first ever British team to win the biggest club tournament in all of Europe. Celtic and Jock taught British teams how to play European football. If Sir Alex Ferguson can get knighted for winning the European Cup why shouldn't Jock - Jock did it first. Jock didn't just win the European Cup, he won so much more but was always grateful, famously saying ''Football is nothing without the fans''.
