Can I make my simple suggestion as to how the whole Celtic family could pay tribute to the late Billie McNeill .
Billie was our number 5 and he led us to five trophies in 1967 .
Our first team have 5 matches left this season and they must make sure they win all 5 .
Our Board can give every player who plays a part in any game £10,000, so anyone who plays in all 5 games gets £50,000.
Us fans can sing the loudest positive Celtic songs that was ever heard . Songs followed by cheers and applause and a new song every five minutes .
Let everyone know just how much we appreciate the great Billie McNeill.
He was ours, he is ours and he will always be ours.

You could at least get his name right Chris.

OMC, What a load of bollox. What on earth are you on about? Giving players £10000 for each of the remaining 5 games? What has that got to do with Billy McNeill? How does that pay tribute to the great man? I think you should go back to bed mate. lol HH.

Give already overpaid players £10,000 more to play in one game, what about all the players give all their match fees in the next game to the food banks as a tribute to Billy McNeil.

Wrong spelling btw, It's Billy
why give players £10K? (for doing the job they are hired to do and well paid for it)
nearly 2 hours of new songs every five minutes!
Sorry mate. I get you are probably feeling a wee bit sentimental about the Big man but maybe you need to rest and re-think
And Billy himself would be the first one to remind everyone. Memories are nice and tributes are appreciated but there is still a league to be won and the most important thing is the 3 points. Getting those would be the thing he would appreciate most. H. H.

If our players need extra cash as an incentative to win the treble treble then i'd prefer they found another club to play for. People like Cesar played for the badge and getting a wage for doing what he loved was an extra. Players in this era get paid more than enough and there's fans all around the world paying a fortune to follow the club and would happily play for free. They shouldn't get an extra penny.

Stan is spot on. If players need a financial incentive to create history then we would be better off without them.
I think if nothing else it's quite insulting to the current squad when most of them have won 7 trophies in a row, to suggest that only extra money will inspire them.
The likes of Kieran Tierney and Scott Brown deserve a bit more respect than that.

We should ask the players to drink FIVE ALIVE before entering the pitch and then in each of the FIVE games that remain to score FIVE goals, two of which will obviously be at minute FIVE and minute FIFTYFIVE.

On a more serious not, I know Ed has organized collections through Just Giving for different causes (I think) especially the food bank at Christmas perhaps we could raise money, in Billy's name, for a charity, chosen by the McNeill family.

This is vintage old man chris right here.

25 Apr 2019 15:02:23
gerryc, the players aren't asking for extra money! lol
OMC is the one who came up with the stupidly ridiculous idea, no-one else anywhere has ever mentioned it. HH.

Every fan should be allowed to give them 5 boots in the baws if they blow the treble.

25 Apr 2019 16:40:21
should take ten grand off them if they don't win them all.

Sorry to annoy some of you, my intention was that everyone and every part of the great Celtic family would play an United role in paying homage to our Billy McNeil . I wanted to ensure from the Board down every part would have a role . I would be happy enough if anyone could come up with something to link the Board into this tribute.
I know many of the team are over paid, but some of them are demonstrating a loyalty to Celtic and could earn more money elsewhere .
I hope we can come up with an idea that allows whole club to demonstrate their love admiration and respect for Billy . Our tribute cannot be confined to Green Brigade.

Stan, I will probably be hammered for saying this, but Jock Stein told one of his friends in the media the reason why the team under performed in the 1970 European Cup Final was a row over bonuses . As Billy McNeil organised everything for the team, he is likely to have played a leading role .
For the sake of honesty and fair play many Celtic players were very angry with J Sein's claim and said they were too professionally to allow money to interfere with their performances.
