On 27th April 1973, Scottish international and the then Arsenal skipper Frank McLintock completed his move to London rivals Queens Park Rangers after 9 years of service at Highbury. Born  in Glasgow and raised in Gorbals, McLintock began his football career in the Scottish Juniors with Shaswfield F.C.
At the age of 18-years, he moved to Leicester City as a wing half but he was not to make his full debut until 1959 during his second season at the club. During his tenure with The Foxes, McLintock won the League Cup in 1964 with the high flying Leicester side that came to be known as ‘Ice Kings’, although they also lost in the FA Cup Final on two occasions, 1961 and 1963.
He joined Arsenal in 1964 for a record £80,000 fee that saw him go straight into the first team. Under the stewardship of manager Bertie Mee, McLintock’s game also went through an evolutionary phase as he switched from the wing half position to become a central defender. Three years later he was entrusted with the armband and true to his stature, he captained the Gunners to victory in the League and FA Cup during the 1970/71 season.
McLintock later on transferred to QPR where he played for four years before retiring from professional football. It comes as no surprise that Frank was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in 2009, what a legend!
