About John Macdonald:
“Obtained from Glasgow Rangers and considered by many judges as one of the cleverest forwards in Scotland. Can play inside forward, but his natural position is outside left. One of the best captures made by Liverpool. A classy footballer, who indulges in quoiting during the summer months.”
