by Robert Harvey

This is a collection of over 340 Quotes, Notes, and Anecdotes about Celtic's greatest midfield player. It also includes a number of photographs, including possibly the first action picture of Bobby. This was the St.Columbkilles v St.Mary's school cup tie at Whifflet in the 1950s.
It also includes a moving interview with Mrs. Kathleen Murdoch (printed with permission of www.celticunderground.net ).
It also has memories of Celtic fans from different countries: including Thailand, South Africa, Holland, Ireland, America, and people who knew him when growing up in Rutherglen.
Some quotes to note:
3. " He is the most honest footballer I have ever known." England World Cup winner Jack Charlton talking about Bobby.
58. " Quite often I would go home from training at Barrowfield with bumps and bruises. Training under Big Jock was competitive. " Bobby Murdoch
83. " He was such a popular lad and a superb player. A big influence, but more importantly he was just a really decent human being ". Billy McNeill
314. " Mr.Murdoch is my Dad ! ". Bobby liked supporters to call him Bobby than by the more formal Mr.Murdoch. He loved sitting with Celtic supporters sharing his stories.
334. Bobby never asked an opposition player to swap his jersey after a game. For example, see the famous photo of the Celtic players running around Hampden and celebrating at the end of the European Cup victory against Leeds United. Most of the Celtic players are wearing Leeds jerseys, but Bobby is still wearing the Hoops. He would happily swap his jersey, but only if an opposition played asked him.
340. "Jock Stein put us on the park afraid of no one." Bobby Murdoch
