JOE BAKER, the former Hibernian, Torino, Arsenal and England forward, has died, aged 62.
Baker holds the record for the most league goals in a season for Hibernian having found the net 42 times in the 1959-60 season. He claimed a remarkable 159 goals in four seasons at Easter Road — all by the age of 21.

Born in Liverpool to Scottish parents, Baker became the first player from a club outside England to be capped for his country, a record that he claimed while at Torino, where he played with Denis Law and won the Golden Boot, despite playing for only one season.
He left after needing life-saving surgery when he crashed his Alfa Romeo Geulietta Sprint.

He returned to the UK, joining Arsenal before moving to Nottingham Forest, where he was known as “Zigger-Zagger”, and collected 41 goals in 116 league games for a side that finished runners-up to Manchester United in the league in 1967.
He then moved to Sunderland before returning to Easter Road, where he scored nine goals in one cup tie for Hibs.
