Former Celtic forward Chris Sutton says Billy Mcneill was a lion, a legend and inspirational man, who was an example for many generations playing for the club.
“A lion, a leader, a legend, a man, who meant so much to so many people and what he achieved on and off the pitch for Celtic. That’s the standard which we all aspire to be and Celtic players in the future.” Sutton told BT Sports.
Mcneill, who played 18 seasons for Celtic, was part of the great team, that won the European Champions Cup in 1967. He also won 9 Scottish League titles, 7 Scottish cup and 6 League cup titles. Overall, 'Cesar' has won 31 major trophies as player and manager for Scottish giants
Celtic beat Kilmarnock on Saturday 1-0 and Neil Lennon said after the match that the victory was a perfect tribute to club’s legend, who passed away on April 22 aged 79.
