Born 13 February 1936 in Blantyre, Mr. Connor grew up to become a successful Scottish former association football player and manager. He played for Celtic, Portadown, St Mirren, Derry City, Albion Rovers, and Cowdenbeath.
Mr. Frank moved to Cowdenbeath in 1974 as player-manager, after coaching at Celtic and Albion Rovers and before a spell as assistant manager at Morton. Between 1980 and 1982, he was able to manage Berwick Rangers.
Later on, he had a spell working under Jock Wallace at Motherwell as assistant manager. Of course, he moved back to Celtic in the summer of 1983, as new manager David Hay’s assistant.
It’s said that in February 1986, coach Frank spent 2+1⁄2 years in that role at Parkhead until he was sacked by Hay. After a while, he went to manage Raith Rovers from 1986 to 1990.
In his first season in charge there, the coach was able to successfully lead Raith Rovers to promotion to the Scottish First Division, besides keeping them in that division for the remainder of his tenure as manager.
Mr. Connor had a spell at Hearts as assistant to manager Joe Jordan after leaving Raith Rovers in 1990. May the legend rest easy in grace and love.
