Denis Law is undoubtedly Scottish football's favourite son. He is joint top record scorer for his country with an impressive strike rate of 30 goals in 52 games and scored in the famous 3 - 2 win over world champions England at Wembley in 1967. As well as his prolific strike rate, he was also part of the Scotland team that won their way through to the 1974 World Cup Finals in West Germany - the first time the Scots had reached the finals in 16 years. In this unique portrait of Denis Law, which is the first book solely devoted to his illustrious international career, Alex Gordon interviews a vast array of former teammates, including Willie Henderson, Davie Hay, John Greig, Pat Crerand, Tommy Gemmell, and international opponents such as Gordon Banks, George Best and Bobby Charlton. Denis Law was the showman supreme. He was more than a mere goal scorer whose cavalier thrusts and menacing darts brought panic to opposing defences. Law was an inspiration to those around him at club and country level and to younger generations of fans everywhere. Team-mates adored him, opponents feared him, fans revered him.
He was a free spirit, an extrovert, a complete one-off, a rare combination of impudence and intelligence, class and clout. Denis Law is, was and always will be The King.
