It has been an emotional 48 hours for the Celtic support as we mourn the loss of Billy McNeill.
The European Cup winning captain passed peacefully in his sleep surrounded by his close family on Monday night. When Celtic confirmed the news on Tuesday morning, there was an outpouring of condolences from not just the Celtic family but the wider football community.
Football clubs, players, former players all paid tribute to the former Celtic captain. Billy was universally respected and that respect shone through again yesterday when Ibrox Legend John Greig said a few words about his friend Billy McNeill. They were the fiercest of rivals but lived in a time where rivalry and respect could go hand in hand without eyebrows being raised.
Today John Greig was the man to pay a special visit to Celtic Park to lay a wreath at big Billy’s statue and remember the Celtic legend.
