Football Player: A lively and instinctive striker, Mo Johnston first came to the fore with Partick Thistle before winning a move to Watford, where he would become an FA Cup finalist in 1984. A big move back to Scotland, and Celtic FC, took place in 1984 and Maurice would win a Scottish Cup and a League Championship title with the Parkhead side, scoring 52 goals in 140 appearances.
In 1987 Johnston moved into French football with Nantes where he scored 22 goals in two seasons. Having publicly stated in 1989 that he was coming back to sign for Celtic, Johnston stunned Scottish football when he later chose to join Rangers.

At international level Johnston won 38 caps, scoring 14 goals, and played at the 1990 World Cup Finals.
