Possil, Glasgow born full back Jim Murphy was signed for Celtic in July 1920 after having served for the Royal Scots Fusiliers in World War One. He made his Scottish League debut for The Bhoys in a 1-0 win over Partick Thistle in December 1920. He was said to have displayed all the coolness of an experienced player and was a regular anywhere in defence during the 1920-21 season but he found his opportunities limited at Parkhead.He played in a relatively small number of games in 1921-22, when Celtic won the Scottish League title but he seemed to lose out after a 1-1 draw with Rangers in October 1921, after when he played at best occasionally for the first team. After a 2-0 defeat by Rangers in 1923 it was asked “Is Murphy of the Celtic not just a trifle too cool at times?“. He joined Clydebank in 1923 after 38 appearances for Celtic, and little is known of his career thereafter.
