Despite being Scottish, Law spent most of his career playing in the English League, and was most closely associated with Manchester United. However, he also famously scored a goal against them at the very end of his career, while playing for local rivals Manchester City, which relegated them from the Football League First Division - Law had only half-heartedly back-heeled the ball towards the goal and did not celebrate when he realised he had scored. He may not have celebrated too hard, but f**k did the City fans go off when they saw their rivals relegated. He had begun his professional career at Huddersfield Town, also playing briefly for Italian club Torino.
Law was capped fifty-fives times for the Scottish national team, scoring thirty goals, a national record he shares with Kenny Dalglish (although Law did it in less games). Since retiring from football after playing for Scotland in the 1974 World Cup, he has often worked as a summariser for radio and television.
