The name came from PARALYTIC as in the early days some of the players were a wee bit pie eyed when playing as they were gathered from local inns and hostelries.

I have to agree with earlier submissions. My earliest recall was that they were facing relegation in the late 50`s and were described as paralytic (drunks). All that changed of course with Jock Stein and the 1961 Cup Final.

How many baby boomers remember the euphoria of that occasion, the Scottish Daily Express chequered bunnets and Eddie Connachan`s heroic defence?
