There was amazing scenes in San Mamés Stadium this evening as John Clark and Billy McNeill’s daughter Susan picked up the ‘One Club Man’ award after the Spanish Club awarded the honour to the late Celtic Legend.
Athletic Club created the award to celebrate players who spent their entire playing career at the one club. Matt Le Tissier and Paolo Maldini have also been honoured with the trophy in recent years.
The Spanish club pulled out the red carpet for Lisbon Lion John Clark and Susan as they accepted the award on Billy’s behalf.
A green and white centre circle with the number 5 was laid on the pitch before the ceremony and the fans gave the pair a very warm reception.

Billy McNeill passed away recently after a long battle with dementia. The legendary Celtic captain got a massive send off by the Celtic fans on the day he was laid to rest with thousands lining the streets of Glasgow to pay their respect.
