McGrain was also a Scotland international, winning 62 caps for his country and taking part in two World Cups.McGrain began his career at Celtic and was one of the 'Quality Street Gang', the outstanding reserve team that emerged in the late 1960s during Jock Stein's nine-in-a-row glory days. He progressed to the first team and went on to play 659 competitive games for Celtic between 1970 and 1987. He won seven League Championships, five Scottish Cups and two Scottish League Cups. He spent his final season of his career with Hamilton Accies, where he helped win them promotion to the premier league.He played in the 1974 and 1982 World Cups for Scotland, captaining the side in their opening match against New Zealand at the 1982 World Cup. His 62 caps have earned him a place in the Scotland Football Hall of Fame. His performances at both club and international level in the 1970s saw him described by many as being one of the best full-backs in the world.McGrain had to overcome several health concerns during his playing career. He suffered a fractured skull in 1972 and in the summer of 1974 was diagnosed with diabetes. A mystery foot injury ruled him out from playing for nearly 18 months in the late 1970s, causing him to miss Scotland's campaign in the World Cup in Argentina.After retiring from playing, McGrain had a spell as manager of Arbroath in the early 1990s, and is now currently part of the coaching staff at Celtic.McGrain is regarded as one of Scotland's greatest players and sports writer Hugh McIlvanney commented, "Anybody who saw him at his best had the unmistakeable impression of watching a great player, probably one who had no superior anywhere in the world."
