Celtic fans were celebrating the historic Centenary double they achieved back in 1988 on Thursday, and a fan page found a video of Tommy Burns’ interview after completing this great campaign. This is causing a lot of the Hoops faithful to rave over the former player.
Winning both the league and the Scottish Cup is a great moment in any campaign, but do to it in a centenary season makes it even sweeter, and it goes down as one of the great moments in the history of the club, per Transfermarkt.
Is Burns a Celtic legend?
Burns was a key part of the squad for 16 years, and made 467 appearances throughout his career with the side, scoring 81 goals along the way, per thecelticwiki. He also returned to the club as manager for three years from 1994-1997 and won one trophy whilst in charge.
Even though he only managed to pick up one piece of silverware whilst in the dugout, he won a crazy amount of trophies whilst playing for the club as he lifted the league title six times as well as five domestic cups.
In the interview, he expresses how good a connection he has with the fan base, as he said, via Celtic Lisboa, “They’re there and they’re always there, and god bless every one of them.”
Fans still appreciate these words as they flocked to the post to praise the midfielder, with one labelling him a “Celtic great”:
