STEVIE CHALMERS will be laid to rest this week after he lost his battle with dementia at the age of 83. The Celtic legend passed just under a week after his captain Billy McNeill passed away with the same illness.
Celtic fans got to give Cesar a massive send-off last Friday as his funeral mass took place and the cortege came through Celtic Park on the way to Billy’s final resting place.
On Wednesday we will say goodbye to a man who scored the most important goal in Celtic football history – Stevie Chalmers. The man who put the ball in the back of the Inter Milan net to deliver Celtic their first and only European Cup.
His funeral mass is set for Wednesday, May 8 at St Mary’s Church in Calton, Glasgow at 11.30am and the Chalmers family have asked all those who would like to attend to wear something green.
The cortege will then make the short journey to Celtic Park where fans can also pay their respects around 12:45pm on Wednesday. Stevie will then be taken to a private cremation ceremony with his close family in attendance.
In lieu of flowers, the Chalmers family ask you to make a donation to Alzheimers Scotland.
Let’s give Stevie a massive send off!
