GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) - Celtic says striker Joe McBride, who was part of the 1967 European Cup-winning squad, has died. He was 74.
The Scottish club said Thursday that McBride died late Wednesday at Glasgow Royal Infirmary. The British Press Association reports that the former Scotland international suffered a suspected stroke over the weekend.
Celtic manager Neil Lennon says "the loss of Joe is terrible news" as he "was someone who was always very supportive to myself."
McBride scored 35 goals in 26 games during the season Celtic won the European Cup, but didn't play in the final against Inter Milan after being injured on Christmas Eve 1966.
He played for Celtic between June 1965 and November 1968, scoring 86 goals in 94 games.
McBride also played for Scottish clubs Motherwell and Hibernian.
