  • A MESSAGE FROM THE McNEILL FAMILY

    WE would like to say thank you for all the kind messages we have received over the last week. They have cheered us up tremendously at this difficult time. The love and affection shown towards our father is nothing short of amazing and is something we will never forget.

    The displays and tributes played before last Saturday’s match reiterated what a special club Celtic is and how big a part of our father’s life it was. Then for our No.5 to score the winning goal was truly magical.

    We would also like to thank all the clubs who marked his passing with a minute’s applause. We really appreciate all the respect shown towards our father.

    Our father always made time for the fans and knew how important they are so we would like to send an open invite to help us pay our respects to him. His body will be taken into St Aloysius Church on Thursday evening at 6:30pm with the church staying open for a short while after the service.

    For those wishing to attend the funeral there will be limited spaces at the church so please arrive early.

    For those who are unable to attend the church, the service will also be broadcast live at Celtic Park, where the funeral cortège will also arrive approximately at 1:30pm.

    Thereafter there will be a private burial.

    Please see the attached route which the funeral cortege will take from St Aloysius to Celtic Park.
