Frank McAvennie

Francis “Frank” McAvennie is a former Scottish football striker best known as a player with West Ham United and Celtic, having had two spells with both of these clubs.


He was capped five times at senior level for his country during the 1980s and scored one goal.


He played eight games for the Hammers in 1987–88, failing to score, before he moved to Celtic for £750,000 on 2 October 1987.


He helped them win the Scottish Premier League and Scottish Cup double. The Cup Final was particularly memorable for McAvennie as he scored two late goals to beat Dundee United 2–1.

Frank is famous for the catchphrase "where's the birds?" - but he never actually said that in real life !

Frank is a very popular and hilarious speaker with many tales from on and off the pitch and from the changing room to the bar !
