BILLY STEEL - THE #10 LEGEND

Billy Steel signed for Dundee in 1950. He scored in his debut game against Aberdeen and from then on the wee wizard achieved legend status for the remaining 130 games he played for the Club. His influence had a powerful impact on the team as he inspired the Dees to lift the Scottish League Cup 2 years on the trot, in 1951 & 1952. His talents were also in demand for the Scottish National team with 13 full caps earned during his 4 years at Dens. His last game for Dundee was in April 1954, and although he departed to live in the USA his legend lives on at Dens Park to this day where they have a Lounge named after him in his honour.
For a more in-depth insight into his life, I recommend a book titled "Billy Steel - Scotland's little maestro" by Bob MacAlindin.
And below is a wee Billy Steel tribute video for your viewing pleasure!.
