A video posted by Frank McAvennie on Twitter has received a lot of praise from many of the Celtic fanbase, as tributes have been pouring in for former player Billy McNeill.
The video shows some of his best moments, and there are a lot to choose from as the defender appeared 790 times for the Celts, winning 13 league titles, 10 Scottish Cups, seven League Cups and one European title, which was the famous 1967 one in which the Scottish side became the first British team to win the title, via Celtic FC.
He enjoyed many years at the club during the late 1970’s-1980’s, both as a player and a manager, and his service to the club is admired by all associated with Celtic.
He will definitely go down as a legend for everything he put into it, and he has a special place in fans hearts.
Frank McAvennie is a former player himself, who played under McNeill, winning the title and Scottish Cup with the side in 1987/88, via thecelticwiki, whilst making 106 appearances and scoring 50 goals.
