Peter Grant is somewhat of a Celtic legend. He started his career when he joined the SPL side as a teenager in 1982.

Making his debut for Celtic in the an Old Firm derby, Grant went on to be an important part of the team that won the Scottish Premier League in 1986 and 1988 as well as the Sottish Cup on four other occasions.

His time at Celtic Park saw the midfielder notch up 462(+8) appearances across 15 years, earning the right to a testimonial game against Bayern Munich in January 1997.

That August Grant signed a £200,000 deal with Norwich City, where he would remain a player until a transfer to our Division Two side in 1999.

Signed by Tommy Burns in August, he remained a regular in the side when Alan Pardew took over just six games into the campaign.

He made his debut for the club against Luton at Madejski Stadium and appeared 32(+6) times in his only season with the Royals as we went on to finish tenth in the league.

He scored just the once and it came in front of the Madejski crowd, the opener in our 2-2 draw with Wrexham that December.

After parting with the club in the summer, the Bellshill-born midfielder joined Bournemouth where he would end his playing career come 2002.

He progressed to a player-coach during his spell on the south coast and was also handed the position of assistant manager before leaving for the same role at West Ham, playing the number two role to his former Royals boss Alan Pardew.

His only time in charge of a club came with Norwich during the 2006/07 season where they finished 16th in the Championship.

He has now recently been appointed first-team coach at Fulham and then following Felix Magath's departure, he took up the role of Lead Professional Development Coach for the U21s, aged 49.
