Born in Chapelhall, Lanarkshire, he was part of the Celtic team that won the European Cup in 1967. Clark is perhaps the most unheralded player among the Lisbon Lions team. His undramatic style of team play in sweeping up beside fellow centre back, Billy McNeil, was integral to the success of the team. His role as Celtic's sweeper earned him the nickname "The Brush."
He left Celtic for Morton in 1971, where he retired from playing two years later.
John Clark is currently employed by Celtic as their kit man, a position he has held for two decades - making him the second-longest ever serving Celt, after Willie Maley.
