    Message from the McNeill family

    By: Newsroom Staff on 17 Mar, 2019 11:01

  • FOLLOWING recent social media speculation regarding Celtic legend Billy McNeill, the McNeill family has issued this update.

    'Further to speculation circulating on social media we would like to confirm the following. As is widely known, our father, Billy, has been battling dementia for some time. He is currently in hospital receiving treatment for an illness. However, at no time have the family been called to his bedside and reports of his death are untrue. 

    'Whilst we appreciate the love and appreciation shown towards our father, the current rumours are upsetting to us as a family. We would appreciate if people would refrain from spreading such stories and respect our request for privacy in this matter.'
