From early this morning fans have flocked to Paradise to pay tribute to their greatest ever captain and Lisbon Lion Billy McNeil.

Fans have been turning out in their droves since news broke at the start of the week that Cesar had passed. There has been quite rightly an outpouring of tributes from all corners of the footballing world for King Billy. The word giant is used in all most every description of the man.

Celtic added a very fitting piece of signage to their main entrance this morning. On each side of the famous Celtic star, the words “Hail Cesar” were erected. It is just ten minutes before kick off and fan group the Green Brigade are due to put on a display from their section. Applause for sixty-seven seconds will take place before kick-off to remember Billy McNeil’s finest hour as Celtic Captain. All the Celtic players will wear black armbands today with the number 5 on them.
