Congratulations to Denis Law on collecting his CBE yesterday but one has to ask why is it not a knighthood. Denis is a man that epitomised all that is great in football and will be the yardstick that most Scotland players will be measured again. His goalscoring records at club and International level speak for themselves and he also won Ballon d’Or in 1964.
Then again Jock Stein was never awarded a knighthood or others from Scottish football who deserved it, whilst the likes of Trevor Brooking has an MBE, CBE and a bloody knighthood.
Anyway, he’s better than a Lord after all he is a King.
