Willie McStay was a former Scottish footballer. He played as left-back and later he played as centre-half and he was excellent in both positions. A strong but clean tackler, McStay was an athletic and determined player whose natural strenght and keen competitive edge made him a formidable opponent and an ideal team-mate. He was fearless performer who never ducked out of challenge but he was also most sporting of player. When on the field he never gave less than his all. His fitness and stamina were legendary and coupled with his determined attitude and tremendous work ethic was a natural ability on the ball which made him one of the most accomplished defenders at the time.

He was primarily a left back, he could play at centre half basically equally as well but his primary position should be CB. I'm also not sure about that date of birth: Wikipedia has it as 21/6/1894 while Celtic Wiki has 21/6/1892. I'm not sure where Adhitz-Zetsu got that date from but I'd be inclined to side with Wikipedia here considering he started his career in 1912 and was still playing for Scotland in 1928. I'd also change the era to 1919-1922. During WW1 he was in the army and spent time on loan in Northern Ireland, he didn't play for Celtic between 1917 and 1919. Wikipedia also lists his height as 175cm, not sure how accurate that is.
