Names like Sir Alex Ferguson, Steven Gerrard, Michael Owen and Jamie Carragher all congregated at Anfield over the weekend as ‘King Kenny’ was honoured with a little piece of his own history, with the new Kenny Dalglish Stand unveiled to the world.
But should McCann expect a similar, grandiose tribute? Well, McCann became owner of Celtic in March 1994 and is credited with saving the club from bankruptcy, and was responsible for restructuring the club and floating it as a plc on the London Stock Exchange.
He managed to raise £14 million that provided funding for the redevelopment of Celtic Park and is generally credited with having a massive influence in building the Hoops in their modern form – and there’s definitely supporters out there who’d be all for it:

North stand should 100% be renamed the Fergus McCann stand, without him there's no Celtic park… or Celtic. 1 of most important in history!

If there is one man who deserves his name emblazoned on the north stand for eternity, it's Fergus McCann. Shouldn't even be a debate.
