Billy Mcneill Statue Fitting Gesture to Caesar


billymcneill_2302199a


How fitting it is celtic are requesting planning permission for a statue to be erected on the  celtic way of the clubs greatest captain……..Billy Mcneill has always kept close ties with the club he served so well on the football field and in management and more recently as ambassador ,he also helped to open the celtic way where the proposed statue of himself will be erected as soon as planning permission is granted by Glasgow city council….


Of course this isnt the first statue with busks of brother Wilfrid,Jock Stein and Jimmy Johnstone around the stadium as well ,Billy will always be immortalised with the image of him lifting the european cup in Lisbon ,its such an iconic image and one that for me as a young fan all those yrs ago adorned the walls of my bedroom ,i was born 2 yrs after the event but by age 7 i was celtic daft ,near the end of the famous nine in a row yrs it was hard for a kid not to love Celtic…


Of course Billy McNeill was a legend back then in my eyes as he is now,having played with celtic through the 9 in a row yrs and managed the club twice ,caeser has always been mentioned hand in hand with the club ,legends are to be remembered and Billy McNeil stands tall its a wonderful gesture by Celtic football club and im sure it will make a lovely addition to the already fantastic entrance to Scotland’s most successful football club………………….
