The birth records of legendary Celtic and Scotland boss Jock Stein have now been made publicly available to view online for the very first time.
The Hoops made history in 1967 when they became the first British club to win the European Cup with Stein at the helm and he also lead the club to 10 league titles
The icon of football was born on October 5, 1922 in Hamilton. His father was a coal miner named George Stein and his mother was Jane Armstrong.

He passed away in 1985 after suffering a heart attack in the dugout during Scotland's 1986 World Cup play-off against Wales in Cardiff.
Stein is just one of the many names that have their birth certificate scanned with births from 1922, marriages recorded in 1947 and death entries from 1972 being made available online by the National Records of Scotland.
The notable death of Whisky Galore! author Compton Mackenzie is also availble to view on the website as is the marriage certificate of Captain Oscar Linda, who helped Polish ex-servicemen adjust to life in the UK, and Lady Isobel Blunt-Mackenzie, who was a well-travelled writer.
Until now, those records would have only been available to people visiting an NRS building, a family history centre or by ordering a copy by post.
Veronica Schreuder, Archivist at National Records of Scotland, said: “The release of new records on ScotlandsPeople is always exciting for researchers and the birth, marriage and death records now added to the site will help many people find out more about their family history.
“Each year’s records contain a wealth of information for those just starting to map out their family tree and for those seeking to branch out their understanding, from the comfort of their own homes.”
