Billy McNeill

Recommended Posts

An absolute legend for Celtic and Scotland.

He lifted the European Cup in 1967, the first British player to do so when Celtic beat Inter Milan 2-1. He won nine titles with Celtic, (nine in a row), Seven Scottish Cups and six League Cups.

With 29 Scotland caps the man was a legend as a player, manager and person.

As a manager for Celtic, he won four titles, three Scottish Cups and a League Cup trophy.

Here's something I nicked from  a massive Rangers fan, a sign of the times I suppose where there's little respect left.

"Sad to hear that Celtic legend Billy McNeill had passed away, a true gentleman who represented his club with honour and dignity , was always respectful to the opposition in victory and defeat . Now their captain is Scott Brown, oh how the times have changed .

RIP Billy".

I'll echo that last sentence, RIP Billy McNeill.

And another one of the Lisbon Lions sadly departs.

Steve Chalmers, the scorer of the winning goal in the final against Inter has also passed away.

Steve scored 155 times for Celtic.

Sadly both of these greats have ended their life with dementia.

Harry Hood next to go. He scored a few hat-tricks in his time. RIP.
