Just read Buzz's mention to the late, great Tommy Burns, born on this day in 1956.
It made me think how much it meant to him to pull on the Hoops for each and every one of the 350 odd games he played for Glasgow Celtic.
Probably sounds sentimental (even old fashioned) to say it but TB played for that jersey and everything it represented including us, the supporters.
Christ I wish we had a few like him in our team today.
R. I. P. Tommy.

God Bless Tommy Burns. What an example of how to live life. Away far too soon at 51 but obviously God thought you’d done enough. Faith, family and football in that order. Thanks for the memories Tommy. Requiescant in pace. ☘️.

See I’m not for all this Celtic man sentiment these days when it comes to players managers etc but I grew up with tb big aitken etc playing in a day when playing for the jersey meant something. Can only imagine the privelage those bhoys felt.

Me too Welshy, players like McGrain, McClair. Owen Archdeacon (LOL)

McClair was my hero Pedro loved him.

Everyone of those names would have walked a marathon just to put on the hoops true great celts.

Love the photo of tb holding Peter grant after the 95 final, pure passion, all these guys are Celtic to the core.

Welshy, McClair was a goal machine and an intelligent player - loved watching him back in the day.

Mclair stayed around the corner from my Grans. The street was always busy with young and old wanting autographs. He always obliged and was a humble guy. Gerry Creaney stayed next to me and always was out and about with the celtic trackies🤣I remember him getting dogs abuse for ages from the jungle. During his run of poor form he scored first against rfc in a Scottish Cup game, he ran and slid on his knees with a get it right up yous gesture which had the stadium going nuts with joy and laughter. We won 2nil that day with 4 red cards. I can't remember the players but it was 3 for them and 1 for us.
