    I was lucky enough to have met Billy when I was a young cub. At that time Billy's legend didn't really mean very much to me. As the years passed and I was fully in awe of all that he has achieved, both on and off the pitch. "May your mind rest easy, sleep well my friend. It's only our bodies that betray us in the end." Your legend will live forever and the world’s loss is heavens gain. Captain. Leader. Legend. Hail Cesar ๐Ÿ€

    Billy was more than a captain, more than a manager, he was one of us. A fan. I remember when he was announced as manager for a second time my uncle sitting next to me on the couch let out a massive roar turned and said to me now you'll see Celtic winning trophies. It was my introduction to Billy McNeill. My second was a year later, having led Celtic to a league and cup double in our centenary year my mum wrote to him asking him to write to me on my ninth birthday. Not thinking he would, I received a letter dated on my birthday from the man himself with photos and autographs of my heroes. It meant the world to me, I still have it to this day. Growing up learning about the lions and the man they called Cesar was a joy. Listening to him talk about not just Celtic but football in general was pleasure and an education. His passion for our club knew no bounds and led to a connection with supporters that will never pass. Rest in peace Billy Hail hail Cesar”

    “Billy McNeil was a name I heard a lot when I was a kid. As the captain of the Lions he was spoken of by my uncles in very high terms as a footballer and as a man. Then when the centenary season came I got to see what a leader the man was. The pressure that year must have been immense to win the league. Not surprisingly, big Billy delivered yet another trophy and another page of folklore for our wonderful football club. Thoughts and prayers with his family at this very sad time. Hail hail, Cesar.

    As a lad brought up listening to stories about the Lisbon Lions and indeed of the winning goal by King Billy against Dunfermline in the 1965 cup final by my Dad who was there...Billy McNeill has always been a part of my life as a Celtic supporter...R.I.P Cesar Hail Hail โ˜˜

    Mark Walsh

    “Growing up in the 60s I only ever saw Celtic on TV up until I went to my first game v Hibs in 1969, and the first Celtic player I saw in the flesh was Big Billy leading out the Bhoys. It's not the best story and I never got to meet him personally to have any great anecdotes to tell, but I'm happy with the fact that our greatest ever captain was the first I saw in the famous hoops. God bless you Billy, you left me with so many happy memories, R.I.P.”

    Michael Ryan

    Thoughts and prayers go out to the McNeill family at this time. The word legend is used to easy these days but that one word describes Billy for everything he done for this football club over the years. God bless, YNWAโ˜˜
    Jim Lavery

    “I'm just really saddened by Billy's passing. A man I had deep respect and admiration for. A true inspiration throughout his life. He was manager when I first started going to watch Celtic and then again in my greatest ever season as a youth in our Centenary year. He is now at peace and left us with great memories and a legacy that will live forever. God bless his family and help them mourn and rejoice in tandem. God bless all the Celtic family, we are unique. "There's only one King Billy"”
    Thomas McCann

    Being considerably young, looking back on the achievements Billy brought to the club and the standard he set as a player and then manager for current players will always stay in the mind of Celtic fans. With him winning and captaining the club to our greatest ever achievement to date is something that will always stand out to the younger generation. Billy's achievements will always stay with us all.”
    Jack Mullen

    A great player who gave me so many great memories during my earlier years. Yes! He captained the 'Lisbon Lions' side but he was so much more. A one club man, how often do you hear that nowadays? And a great ambassador for his club. Thank you.”

If there was ever a physical embodiment of Celtic it’s you Mr McNeill. Your work on earth is done now. Jock will be happy he has his captain back by his side. Sleep tight. You’ll never walk alone.

    Gordon Meiklejohn

    “RIP to Celtic's greatest ever captain. On the day I was born, Billy McNeill was the manager of the club, and although I was too young to remember him at the helm or to have witnessed his playing days, I knew about Billy's role at the club, as part of the Lisbon Lions and his centenary double as manager, from a young age. I will pass the stories of what Billy did for the club, and what he stood for, to my own children when they are born, and help to ensure that his memory is kept alive for generations to come. Celtic and Scotland have lost a true giant of the game's history, but more importantly, the world is a worse-off place for Billy's passing. The small consolation we all have is that he is no longer suffering and will have no shortage of great company at the pearly gates. Be at peace, Cesar. Hail Hail.”

     Never had the chance to meet you Billy, but from being a regular fan since 1984, your influence on my Celtic memories not only as captain of the all conquering '67 team, but also the manager of the double winning team of the '88 Centenary Season is above and beyond all others. Watching those moments back (in which you were so instrumental and integral to) fills me with such emotion that I cannot, and refuse to hide. It's part of what makes me, me. You, and our great club hold such a special place in all our hearts, and I shall forever hold you in the highest esteem as the great leader and gentleman that you are.. An absolute colossus in the history of our great club. YNWA Billy.

     I remember as a kid going down to Seamill and seeing Mr. McNeill as manager. I was so awe struck I asked my Dad to get his autograph. As soon as Cesar appeared my Dad walked and about turned - He too was overcome of meeting his idol. My Dad has passed too and he had a stature and presence that filled a room... But Mr. McNeill led a club, a people and a Celtic following to the pinnacle of splendour. You led the Lions, Billy, and we will always remember you. My sincere condolences to all the family from the McKennas.

From documentaries and matches when you played and from interviews old and recent i could see you were a true gent on and off the pitch and always full of class. Thank you for laying the groundwork really for any football captain, showing them how to conduct themselves! You are an inspiration to every single Celtic manager, captain, player in general and fan there has been after you there has been after you played and ever will be in the future! Rest in peace Cesar!

     I was 5 years old attending one of my first Celtic games, the Scottish Cup final against Dundee Utd 2005. Naturally my memory of this afternoon is indistinct and fuzzy given my young age but I remember and only remember a single precise moment. As we began to make our way to the seats, my dad stopped me at the point of coming into contact with a man who shook my dad’s hand, signed my programme and then wished us well. We walked to our seats close by and I vividly remember asking my dad quite confused and intrigued “who was that man dad ”, he replied proudly, knowing this was to be the first time I’d heard his name “that’s Billy McNeill.” Over time as a supporter I naturally expanded my knowledge to learn of the man he was and the time and dedication he had for the club I love, becoming Celtics values personified. My second and final encounter with Mr. McNeill was in December 2015, I found myself lucky enough to be sitting in the hospitality at Celtic Park. This day was historic for the greatest ever captain and his club as a statue was unveiled in his honour before the game. At half time I looked across the surreal boardroom in the bowels of Celtic Park, watching the now elderly man sat down and surrounded by the love and admiration of both the Celtic family and his own. Billy McNeill never played or managed Celtic within my life time and so compared to most people my story won’t stand out in significance to convey how great a man he was. However as a Celtic supporter having learned the history of the Club and the man it calls ‘Cesar’, I grew to understand that that moment in Hampden may have stuck in my early childhood memory for a reason, as men like Billy McNeill are fortunate to come across once in a lifetime.

      John Haggerty
     Condolences to all Billy's family at this sad time. He will be remembered fondly by many, in his role as the Leader of The Lions; my personal memory was for his   goal headers   the Scottish Cup winner against Dunfermline, which set the Lions on there way, the one against Vodjavina and the early one in the Scottish Cup Final against Rangers which settled the team down, leading to a comfortable win. He was dominant in his aerial battles and alongside   The Brush   they were majestic in there defensive duties. Much will be said of The Lions being a fantastic attacking side, which they were, but they were also, when asked, a formidable defensive team. I feel privileged to have been raised a Celt in such a successful time in the Clubs history. Thanks for that Billy GBNF / RIP to a True Celt God Bless x

     I met Billy McNeill and Bertie Auld when I was wandering through the Celtic store at the age of 13. Although I had been a supporter through my family, they started my true passion for my team and I’ll never forget how great they were! I’m now 25 and so grateful to be a part of this Celtic family. All thanks to those two great men.

     I met Billy at his and John Clarke's 50th dinner in the no 7 restaurant. He was such a down to earth man and had some great stories, We had photographs together and he left our table a bottle of champagne since he was leaving. My wife went into the Celtic shop later that year to get me a present for Christmas and who was sitting at the back of the shop but Billy sitting alone , he had signed countless books but he still stayed even though there was nobody there till my wife appeared and she had a great hat with him and he signed my book it was a sign of the man a true gentleman and Celt and will be sadly missed RIP Billy it was a pleasure to meet you sir.

     The man who is the very definition of living the Celtic Way. The man who spoke of Celtic possessing a fairytale element; he was the man who created these fairytales. The man who captained Celtic out of the barren era into the golden years. The man who managed the club he loved and brought even more success. The man who lifted the big cup and etched his name into footballing folklore. He is a legend. He is immortal. He is Cesar.

     One time I remember meeting Billy was a day or 2 after David Marshall's great performance in the Camp Nou in 2004/5 season , Billy was there supporting the young Celts at a reserve game in Excelsior stadium, Airdrie He wasn't in a directors box like he could have been , he was on the concourse at the kiosk buying a cup of tea like everyone else and chatting with the fans and I remember his big frame and even bigger personality , and thinking how he was a giant of the club and game in every sense of the word Rest in peace Cesar, you'll never be forgotten and you'll never walk alone Hail Hail

     Celtic's Greatest Ever Captain may be gone, but he'll never be forgotten. As I'm a 70's wean, I missed out on seeing Cesar play, but thanks to ma dad I knew all about Billy and the Lisbon Lions. I was lucky enough to travel up and see many games whilst he was in charge and was at the 1988 Cup Final when he led us to the historic double in our Centenery year. His record speaks for itself and he was loved by all. A massive, massive loss to the Celtic family. Thanks for the memories Billy YNWA x

     I was lucky enough to see Billy from his early few games at Right Back through to the end of his career and shared many of his happiest and not so happy moments from afar. He personifies the ideal through which Celtic supporters see their club. I say personifies because although Billy has gone the ideal has not in spite of the modern day commercial challenges Celtic face. As Billy said there is 'something of a fairy tale about Celtic' but nobody made it more so than him and we must strive to keep the fairy tale ideal alive.
     
      Colin Dyas
     My first ever memory of watching football on TV was the 1967 Lisbon Final with my Dad as a 7 year old boy, in a town called Shrewsbury in the West Midlands... I wanted the striped team to win until my dad explained what was going on and why the game was so important.. After that Celtic became my favourite Scottish team.. Their achievements in 1967 (winnlng all with a team born in or just outside Glasgow) will never be repeated by any team, anywhere at anytime. And Billy was their leader. I cant think of another football club captain who can say this, because there isn't one.. Billy McNeill was, and always will be a true legend, to his club, his city and his nation.. He was a lion and a gentleman.

     I worked in the club shop a good while ago and was asked to take some limited edition Lisbon Lions prints to Billy's House for him to sign. I was extremely nervous but both Billy and his wife Liz were absolutely lovely and genuinely couldn't have been more down to earth. Over the time I spent there he told me a couple of stories and I left absolutely buzzing. A few weeks later there was a signing session in the superstore with a few of the Lions. Jimmy, Stevie Chalmers & Billy. I happened to be milling about the shop when Billy noticed me and broke away from everyone to come over and say hello. He shook my hand, remembered my name and asked how I was doing. That might not seem a big deal to some people. but for a man of his stature to take that time out & come over and speak to me, let alone remember my name, meant so much to me and is something I will never forget. An absolute class above. Hail Cesar!

     I was born in 1993, so my memories of Billy we’re from watching old videos & clips of his playing career and managing career. I met Billy when I was 5 & I still have the photo. Celtic has been a big part of my life and Billy McNeill even though I never seen him play or manage Celtic he was always a huge role model for me. The way he carried himself and represented himself, was something I always admired. Only for Billy McNeill Celtic F.C wouldn’t be the club we are today. My thoughts are with the McNeill family during this difficult period. “The fans came in their thousands, to see The Bhoys become champions” Hail Hail 67!

     We were brought up a stone throw from Paradise. Everything was Celtic, everything was Jock Stein, and of course everything was Billy McNeil. Billy was central to our daily lives and thoughts. He was the central figure, along with Jock, to the creation of a brand, a mythology of a club, a belief system. It transcended mere football as it cut into our being every single day. It got us through school, work and everyday issues that we faced. He therefore was central to creating who we are and what we stand for...even today. RIP Cesar. I don’t need to exaggerate in saying that I shed a tear on the morning of 23 April 2019. Gone, but never to be forgotten.

     I remember being at Celtic Park about 20 years ago as a kid, no older than 5/6. Was waiting behind after a 3-1 win over Dundee, to see the players come out. Out walked Billy McNeill, Jim Craig and Bertie Auld. I shouted to my Dad ‘Awk who are they!’ Will never forget Billy laughing, coming over and saying “Don’t mind us wee man, we’re just 3 silly old men!” How wrong he was!

     I was too young to witness you as a player and a manager but I do get the benefit of watching footage that captured you at the very best. You stood up like the giant of a man you were and brought so much joy to every one of us Celtic fans. Its heart worming and brings a tear to your eye just seeing the tributes come in from all across the world and it's what a true icon deserves. Hail Hail C.E.S.A.R you will be sadly missed but never ever forgotten.

     There are men who you always look up to in life and strive to be like in some way, My Dad was one of these people and Billy McNeill is the other, In simple terms because of the way he was with everyone, He didn't treat anyone any different, He loved Celtic and he loved the fans. He achieved greatness along with all his team mates and his players but he lead by example and I think listening to people who knew him and the kind words and stories they tell there will never be anyone like him again, A celtic Legend, A Leader Of Men and a man of the people.

     First time I. Met Billy was a meeting with him for the gpo csc in 1992 to leave from his new pub mcneills bar in Govanhill I remember first thing he asked was what I wanted to drink I struggled to answer as I was in awe of such a great celt. The bus left his pub throughout the 10 years he had it and sometimes Billy travelled on it to celtic Park. But it was an honour to get to know him.,liz and his lovely family a little. he told some funny stories about his years at celtic and on a sat he would play dominoes with the boys such a gentleman god bless you Billy ynwa
     
      Stephen Patrick Mallon
     I am from Belfast. I am 43 years old. Unfortunately I never got to see Cesar play. However. I come from a Celtic supporting family, my Granda travelled over to Celtic Park on the old cattle boats from the 1940's, my Father travelled countless times from the 60's, I have been going since 1982 and my kids now go with me now and on and on it goes.... My Granda actually met my Gran on the boat on one such trip. She was studying in Falkirk to be a Nurse. She was from Donegal and a cousin of the Great Patsy Gallagher. My family is steeped in Celtic. From the cradle to the grave. Although I never witnessed King Billy play, I was raised with all the fairy-like tales of your triumphs in the Hoops. My first game was the league clincher against St Mirren at Paradise 1982. Billy was manager of that great side. My favourite memories of following Celtic were the magical Centenary season. Every game spent with my late Father at that time gave me truly special priceless memories. Cesar led Celtic to glory again and gave me, my family and the entire Celtic Family these beautiful gifts which nobody can ever take away. God bless and rest easy Billy you are alive forever in the hearts of so many all over the world. HAIL HAIL x

Eternal Rest Grant unto Billy Lord and let your Perpetual Light shine apon him, may he rest in Peace. AMEN. xx

     I am to young to have seen you play but I know my history and what you did for the team that we both love was amazing and the success you had when you managed the team. But I have heard many of people who had the honour to meet you there stories and how they praised the gentleman that you were of the field and not all Celtic fans it is good to hear people put rivalry aside and recognise a genuine gentleman and brilliant Scottish footballer. I don't know if we will ever lift that big trophy again even if we do the memory of the first will never be forgotten for it put is in the history books. Now you use those wings that you have grown and get up there with your teammates who have gone before you and big jock and your friends and family and have a blast. Rest in peace Cesar

     It’s extremely fitting that billy’s family members have been given this support and even though an ending of a chapter came about on Monday another chapter has just began for you guys. Billy gave joy to so many people all over the world a humble character that was part of something history can never repeat. We seen him in his public outings you guys had the pleasure of this man in your everyday life. My grandfather passed on with dementia as well it’s a very difficult time for any family remember his good healthy times the happiness he gave you and the the enjoyment he gave so many others with his presence and talking about his history making experiences. All the best in the future

     The first time I met Billy was in Seville for the UEFA Cup Final In 2003. I had travelled in a chartered flight with Celtic fans. It was a brilliant experience that was made even better when I met Billy. I was so nervous approaching the great man but there was nothing to be nervous about because he was superb. A true gent. A fantastic human being. The other time I met Billy was at a boxing event that I took my brother in law to and Billy was there. My brother In law is a season ticket holder at Celtic Park and was desperate for photo but was too scared to approach. Later that evening I went over to Billy to ask if he’d mind letting me take a picture with him and my brother in law. Billy didn’t just stop to take the picture but stood and chatted away as well. My bro in law has cherished that picture ever since. Billy, I only met you a couple of times but I’ll never forget those moments. The word Legend was created with you in mind. You’ll Never Walk Alone x

     Met him once in Port Glasgow, he was opening the fet at St. Francis Chapel, just got to shake his hand, as we didn't really have mobile phones at this time, all my mates where all over him, getting autographs and I stood at the back, he said let me through and came over to me, shook my hand, he took time out for everyone that day, top man

     To celebrate my grandads 90th birthday we took him to celtic v inverness in 2013 with all the family as he had not been to parkhead in a good few years due to ill health. When the game was over we went back to the car and out came Billy from the front entrance and came over to speak to my grandad at the car. He spent a good 10 minutes speaking to him about games my grandad watched him play and then later manage in from the terraces. Just a thoughtful gesture that made my grandads day that little bit more special. RIP Caesar YNWA

     Been lucky enough to meet Billy on 2 occasions. I’ve been a ball bhoy for Celtic for 5 years now and on my very first game as a ball bhoy he was in the tunnel talking to all the ball bhoys and he turned round to me and said “You remind me of my Pal Jimmy Johnstone with that red hair” was such a genuine man. The other time was after the inter Milan game a couple of years ago and he was in the main reception and he started talking to me. Such an inspiration R.I.P Caesar
     
      Jamie Kelly
     I had the pleasure Billy on several occasions at Celtic supporter events where my cousins band would play at. He would sit with the band at the side of the stage and then sit with us while they played before telling some of his many great stories at the interval. A true gent and made time for absolutely everybody regardless how busy the crowd was. He never left til the last person had gone. Most memorable quote was when he and Bertie called me tam as I never put my hand in my pocket to buy a round when it was my turn I would dodge it like go to the toilet or a cigarette when I didnt even smoke. To this day the name still sticks. Absolute gem of a man and one man I have told my kids about repeatedly and will tell my grandkids about too. Legend gets thrown about alot these days to people who dont deserve it, but I think the definition lies within Billy. True heroes never die and I'm sure in years to come Billy will still live on within our hearts and stories. Theres only one king Billy and that's McNeill Gods 11 now has its captain and leader. Goodnight Godbless Cesar R.I.P

     I was lucky enough to meet Big Billy on numerous occasions and was always in awe of him as a great Celt, arguably the greatest ever. But more than that was Billy McNeill the man. Nothing was ever too much and he always had time for the supporters like me, possibly as he humbly felt he was just like us, a Celtic supporter. Looking back at various photos of Big Billy with me or with my family or with my friends, the greatness of the man shines through. I know countless Celtic supporters all over the world will feel the exact same way. Gone but never to be forgotten. You’ll Never Walk Alone.

I was hooked on Celtic when you were the manager when I was a wee Bhoy and I have never looked back. A true gentleman when I met you ,the aura you gave off was immense . The day after we won the league in ‘88 you travelled to Dumfries for our supporters function . A true Celtic Legend ,who is now at peace after battling a horrific condition. May God bless you Billy , our thoughts are with your family at this sad time . Hail Cesar ,a true Celtic legend .x

     I have watched all the old footage of Billy, I have many books and photos of the great man in his prime. I also have his autograph in a book along side Jimmy McGrory's, this is my most prized Celtic possession. My Dad watched him from his debut in the late 50's and says he is the greatest ever to pull on the hoops. The double winning Centenary team managed by Billy will always be my favourite team, I was 10 at the time and they are some of my greatest memories of watching Celtic. Fan, Player, Leader, Captain, Manager, Legend, Inspiration and Immortal. Thoughts and Prayers to the McNeill family and friends. RIP

     I remember being younger and we were going to a wedding reception (not before dad saw the sports news obviously) I had been slagging his tie which was green and navy. Billy McNeil was doing an interview on the sports news wearing the exact same tie, my dad turned to me and said if it's good enough for the captain of the Lisbon Lions it's good enough for me! Fast became his fave tie and till the day passed he never let me forget. I never got to see you play in person but I grew up knowing and understanding your legacy! I was fortunate enough to meet you when I worked at Celtic Park and you were one of the most genuine down to earth people I'd ever met! God Bless Hail Caesar You will most definitely never walk alone!

     No stories, just tremendous love and respect for the only king Billy. He and his Lions temamates put Celtic at the forefront of World football and they did it with style and panache. No words of thanks will ever be enough. There is some team in heaven right now, and they are no doubt sweeping all before them while making them smile. Thanks Mr McNeill.

     Although most of his achievements happened a fair bit before our time, me and my mates respected Billy and we'll continue to honour his name in the future. The statute of him at Celtic way and that iconic footage of him lifting the big cup in 67 is spine tingling a reminder to us all, now and always, of how special this club is thanks to Billy and the Lions. Thank you and God bless from the Coatbridge Bhoys

     I woke yesterday morning to the news my Celtic hero from my youth had passed away. I spent my younger days in Castleblayney in Co Monaghan kicking a ball against a wall imagining I was Billy McNeill, probably the 1st song I ever learned were the words to “there’s only one King Billy, that’s McNeill” , sang it before I reached double figures of age. I’d always wanted to meet the great man and one night in 1990 myself and my friend Paul Johnson drove on a foggy night to Dublin, on arrival in Buswells hotel I went straight to the toilet, while standing at the urinal in walked Cesar (it wasn’t how I expected meeting him that’s for sure) but immediately he started chatting, we washed our hands at the sink and we then walked together to the room where the discussion was being held on saving Celtic FC by the Naomh Padraig CSC. When leaving the hotel later after a few beers (Paul drove home !!!) Tommy Gemmill, Big Billy, Paul and myself left together and as the 2 lads were getting the taxi the 4 of us were singing the Celtic song. What a memory to have and sadly I’m the only survivor from that group of 4 now. I eventually met Billy that many times tru CSC function’s and my time with the AICSC, from Omagh to Dublin, from Belfast to my home town of Monaghan where he was guest of of honour at our CSC dinner. I met him that often that it felt so normal being in his company, my hero knew me by my name, many a time he picked out of me, slagging me and he could’ve done 24hrs a day u just always felt comfortable in his company. There was an aura about him that I’ve never felt about anyone else where Celtic is concerned, he had a stature, a presence when he walked into a room, he oozed Celtic FC. He was a leader, a hero, a gentleman and he was Celtic tru and tru, we will never see his like again. Rest In Peace Cesar and once again thanks for so many great memories

     Thoughts and prayers go to Liz and the family at this sad time. Had the pleasure if being in the company of Billy and Liz in benidorm at the Celtic convention, along with big John Hughes, I was with friends who were friends of big John and we spent the Friday of the convention across from the celtic bar in a small bar just back off the main road, A taxi arrived and out came Frank McAvennie and willie Mcstay , Frank headed straight to Billy and gave him a hug and call him da. Not one of the Celtic supporters who were litterly 50 yards from us new we were there, Billy and big John were just having some quiet time before the convention started on the Saturday. Billy and John were complete gentleman and were always willing to share there stories and liz was a lovely lady, I also think Jimmy johnstone's wife Agnus was there also a lovely lady. It was my only time in Billy's company apart from watching him from the terraces, but it's a memory I shall cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you Billy for all the wonderful football memories and for the one occasion i sat in your company and you made me more than welcome, you will never be forgotten, Rest in peace Captain my Captain.

     I’m a younger Celtic fan, but from footage and what my dad tells me Billy McNeill was clearly an outstanding player and person both on and off the pitch. The photo of him holding the European cup aloft will be one of the all-time great football - and certainly Celtic -images. I only wish I was around to see him and the Lisbon Lions. They achieved something absolutely remarkable, and at the heart of that was our greatest captain Billy McNeill.

     My love of Celtic started with stories of Billy McNeill and the Lisbon Lions. I loved going to the football with my dad, the atmosphere and noise in the jungle will live with me forever. I visited McNeills bar many times and chatted to the great man, and his kids went to my school. Last year I visited Lisbon and the Estádio Nacional with my boyfriend on the 25th May and luckily gained access. What a moment, to see where our heroes had played, the tunnel from the dressing room to the pitch, the spot where Cesar stood lifting the big cup was way more emotional that I ever expected and one I would never change. Rest well Cesar, you are loved and you too are immortal. Our captain, legend and hero. Hail hail xxx

Sadly, I am too young and never had the privilege to see him play, but that picture in Lisbon gives me goosebumps. Rest easy, Billy. Hail Cesar.

     Billy and the Lions set a benchmark for clubs from these islands to aim for. Many have surpassed that benchmark with trophies etc but none will ever equal the sense of family, charity and togetherness that is Celtic Football Club. Your loss to us supporters is immense but nowhere near that loss felt by Liz and your family. Thank God for your humanity, humility and talent, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ Hail Cesar. Rest in peace.

My thoughts go out to Billy's family and friends at this time, a sad time but one where we can all look back on his time as a footballer, a manager, but above all a husband, a Dad, a Grandpa and a great human being.

     Being Born 13 years after our greatest triumph in our history 25th May 1967. I was brought up with stories from my Father,Uncle,and Aunts about this great Man on how he was a Lisbon lion the leader in fact. The first British player to lift the cup with the big ears and to lift it by himself proudly aloft in the Estádio Nacional. Then got to see this great man himself manage our club and seeing them win the double in our centenary year. Thank you Cesar, God Bless,YNWA

     When I was around 12-13 I met billy and had my photo taken with him. What was amazing to me was that he was surrounded by fans and security on his way into paradise, but he saw me, desperate for a photo, and he wouldn't go inside until he got that photo with me, tugging my scarf at the same time. This shows how passionate he was as a celtic man, but also as a sincerely kind gentleman, who put others before himself. Rest in peace Cesar, YNWA.

     I am 42 now, however Billy game me my first cup final joy at Hampden in 88. I was also at the clinching of league that year. Too young to remember Lisbon but the footage from mid sixties through to mid seventies glory are with me always. Billy won a third of our collective club silverware and the true spirit of Celtic will always be with our No 5. A true hero, leader, legend and gentleman. Thanks Mr Celtic

     I didn’t have the honour of meeting Billy so can’t share any stories or memories. However, I cannot think of a man who has represented Celtic at so many different levels with such dignity, respect or pride. He is well thought of worldwide and not just nationally. Celtic will NEVER see his like again and his memory will live for generations.Thoughts are with his family, friends and past teammates . Hail Caesar.

     My earliest memory of Mr McNeil was as a kid my old man took us down to Longford town were Celtic played a pre season game and as always he knew what Hotel the team were staying. We walked in and he took us over to meet Billy who after a few minutes chatting got an official to take me around the rooms to meet the players as ma father and Billy talked. I am now 41 and will never forget that day My father also passed this year after suffering from dementia and I pray to god he will meet up with Caesar for more of those chats in Paradise      Hail Hail Billy YNWA

     I was born in 1996, decades after Billy graced the Scottish game with his playing and managerial abilities. Yet as I grew older I soon realised how pivotal he was to the lions of 67 and a large spell of Celtic’s existence in general. A man I now look to as the best captain in my club’s history. Watching videos back of McNeill's playing days I realised how unlucky I was to have missed watching him in the flesh, but also how lucky I was for him to have been around as I grew into my teens as a Celtic supporter. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet some of my heroes, like Henrik Larsson and Lubo, but never Billy. Yet I know not only how much of a legend he is but also how much of a gentleman he was and for someone to have that effect on people generations after he was playing the game says volumes about his character. I did not watch him play. I did not watch him as manager. But I will watch him continue to go down in history as the best ever captain of the green and white. Hail Hail Cesar, You’ll Never Walk Alone. X

     My Father introduced me and my Brother to Celtic as wee Bairns. He was around in your Glory Days and always talks about THAT header against Vojvodina. I never saw you play but I was travelling with the Eyemouth Supporters Bus in the 80's and had the chance to watch your teams as our Manager. The Centenary season will never be forgotten and it was only right that it was your team who did that famous double. In later years you always said Hello and smiled when I was lucky enough to see you in the passing. Thank you for all the memories made for my Dad, my Brother an myself. God Bless You You Will Never Walk Alone

     I had a great honour of sharing a few drinks with billy Mcneill at the boardroom at Celtic Park before heading to the Kerrydale suite for a Lisbon lions night. It’s a night that would never leave my memory as I have always looked upto the Lisbon lions ever since I was a young boy. Billy was a very humble man who actually had all the time in the world to talk to the fans. One great memory of that night was when billy and Bertie auld shouted on me to leave the board room with my two friends and follow them. They then took us into a room just outside the boardroom where they snuck the European cup into. Billy Mcneill then stood behind the door to stop anyone coming in. Billy and Bertie then allowed us to have photos with them and get to lift the trophy and have photos with them. We then went onto have conversations for a number of minutes before someone realised we were in the room. It will be a memory that will last with me forever along with one of the greatest achievements of this clubs history. Billy will forever be the greatest captain in my eyes and his loyalty to this club will never be forgotten. RIP Billy “the greatest” Only one King Billy that’s Mcneil

     Had the honour of being there to photograph the unveiling of his statue on behalf of the club which is now fittingly the focal point of his tributes. To see the sheer jubliation in fans young and old shows you how much he meant to us all and his legacy will endure! Rest in Peace Cesar

I know for me personally although not knowing Billy, i knew what he stood for. He is the epitome of what Celtic Football Club strives to achieve every day. He will go down as the first man on this to lift the European Cup immortalising himself and the club so they could never be forgotten.

     Billy, where do I even begin with you  To call you a legend is an understatement. An iconic figure, a colossal of a man within our great club, you helped put us on the map. Some of the biggest clubs around the world have sent their thoughts and prayers to you, it shows how well thought of you were worldwide. I had the pleasure of meeting you and I was in awe when I seen you before my eyes, a day I will never ever forget. We will continue to sing your name and tell our children and grandchildren about you. You will never ever be forgotten. Its now your time to meet up with Simpson, Murdoch, Gemmell and Jinky. Sleep tight Cesar. You’ll Never Walk Alone.

     Never met Billy in person but felt I knew him due to my dad's wonderful stories about the Lisbon Lions and their magnificent achievements during the 60s/70s under his leadership. To this day I'm so thankful my Dad learned me the history of this wonderful club and a massive part of that history is Big Billy. A true Celtic Man, Player, Captain, and Manager HH CESAR RIP YNWA

     Watching his Lions team of 67 in the European Cup Final with my uncle on is one of the lasting memories I had of him before he died. Billy reminded me of my uncle because of how much he spoke about that team and those days of supporting Celtic.

     Best memory I have of Billy is when I traveled over from Belfast with my friend with my dads canvas of the Lisbon Lions we bought for my dads 50th to try get signed by the great man himself. We played Inverness that day and after the game we not only found Billy but Bertie Auld as well. They both seen me and my friend standing waiting to get the canvas signed and before signing it they actually took time out to tell us about Lisbon before signing it. To hear this from 2 legends of 67 It’s a memory I’ll never forget. What an absolute gentleman this guy was. Just wish I grew up to seeing these guys play. RIP Caesar

     I met Billy on a couple of occasions, with anyone who meets a hero you obviously get starstruck and nervous... even more-so when you’ve got a stammer. Billy seen I was struggling to get some words out... Billy put his hands on my arm and said... “it’s only me... I have all the time in the world, take your time and relax”. I have always remembered that and I will be forever grateful to have met and spoken to Mr Celtic. Billy has gone but certainly will never ever be forgotten. Thoughts and prayers to the McNeill family. The Lion sleeps tonight... RIP Cesar... Hail Hail...

      Kelly McGeachy
     If any club in the world was asked to describe what they wanted in a captain, I have in no doubt that they would be painting a picture of Billy McNeil. His Stature, Leadership, Command Respect. And off the field, and absolutely perfect ambassador for his club. He earned the respect of the football world, not just for his achievements, which were so many, but also for the way he treated people and represented Celtic Football Club. Every time a Celtic fan looked at Cesar, we had a sense of pride that this man was the face of Celtic. Love and Deepest sympathy to Mrs McNeil and family and thank you for sharing your life with us all he’s left one paradise to enter another paradise his legacy will live on for more years to come.... “MR CELTIC”

     Firstly I would like to offer sincere condolences to the family of Billy McNeill at this difficult time. I only had the privelige of meeting him once at a supporters function in Ireland and was already in awe of him after growing up on stories and old footage of the Lisbon lions. He was an absolute gentleman, humble and is the greatest ever Celtic for what he achieved. True legend. Hail hail cesar   
     
      Liam McNamee
     As a 21 year old Celtic supporter I never saw the great man play or even manage the club. However, from a young age I’ve heard countless stories from my Dad, Papa and Uncle of the heroics and importance of the great Billy McNeill. A man we will all be forever in debt for what he done in putting Celtic on the map as one of the worlds great clubs. Rest In Peace Cesar and God Bless.

     Billy McNeill was one of my dad's heroes. When I was a kid, my dad would tell me about the Lisbon Lions and how Billy was the captain and leader of the team. My dad has a smile on his face everytime he talks about Billy and the rest of the Lisbon Lions. Despite being too young to see Billy McNeill play for or manage Celtic, I have always had a sense of how important he was to our great football club.

     The shining example of leadership. Quiet, confident and ready to face any challenge. From seeing him as a manager as a youngster. The greatest manager I saw Celtic with until Martin O'Neill's era. To seeing the replays of him as a player where he strode out at Lisbon and became a global icon. Our Ceasar. The One King Billy. Thoughts and prayers. Save me a seat. I hope to see you again. One Love.
     
      Tom Dearie
     As long as I've loved and supported Celtic Football Club, Billy McNeill has always been there, a part of my life as a supporter and a part of the very fabric that makes Celtic what it is. I Briefly met Billy McNeill after the Cup final in 2013, It remains the only time I have been genuinely star struck knowing I was standing with a giant, a true legend of a man. Billy McNeill represents the very best of our football club, He epitomises to us all what it means to be a Celt. To his wife, family and friends I offer my sincere condolences. Rest in Peace, Cesar. You'll Never Walk Alone.

God bless Billy McNeill, a Celtic legend.

     Billy, you were probably the first real hero my dad and granda had. They told me stories of you that I will, God willing, pass on to my own sons one day. They made you seem immortal. To us, you are. You achieved everything we all dream of and more. Thank you for being part of the team that allowed us to dream. You weren’t just a part of our history, you defined our history and our future. We love you. You’ll never walk alone.

     I was never old enough to see the great man play for our club. However, growing up, I have heard so many wonderful stories about him. Billy epitomised what it means to be a Celtic player and captain. He is a hero and a leader of men. The grit and determination of the man led not only to him directly contributing to 31 trophies for the club, but he has been the perfect idol for many succeeding captains and managers to follow in his footsteps. An inspiration, who has been the hallmark of so much of our success, no words can fully do him justice. His legacy will live on for many years to come and in 100 years time, we will still be speaking of the legend that is Billy McNeill. Hail Cesar, Rest in Peace.

      Paul Sutherland
     A truly sad loss to the Celtic family and the world of football. I remember my Dad taking me to your bar when I was a boy to sign my Lisbon Lions hat and you allowed me to sneak in to the pub to say hello and you signed my hat and then talked to me about Celtic. It was an amazing moment I will cherish forever. A legend, a Lisbon Lion talking to me a daft wee boy about Celtic and making me think what I said mattered. It takes a special kind of person to do that and I'll be able to tell my kids and grandkids about that. The world has lost a one off Thank you for everything. Celtic wouldn't be what is today without you. RIP Cesar. Hail Hail.

     I met Billy McNeill once in my life. I was fortunate to meet him one day a few years ago I had been invited to hospitality at Celtic Park. I really didn’t know what to say to him I was that much in complete awe. We spoke about players that were coming back from injury but he was welcoming and very warm in his greeting. What an amazing experience. Rest in Peace Billy ‘Cesar’ McNeill

     The first season my father took me to all Celtic matches, what did we dowon every trophy we entered no less, and the unique man who led us on the field was none other than Billy McNeilll, I cannot claim to have ever got to know Billy, but the stories and anecdotes I have read from litterely all four corners of the world speak volumes for the man. I too 'had something in my eye' when I heard the sad news, I am sure his family and loved ones are 'relieved' his suffering has gone, but never the memories, My condolences to his family, his friends and amazingly to the thousands upon thousands of people who's lives have been touched by this humble giant of a man's passing.

     Billy McNeilll – My Hero, My Captain , My Leader, My Friend Ever since I was a wee boy collecting Lisbon Lions figures, there was always something about Billy McNeilll that stood out for me at a young age. That superior imposing photograph captured of him raising the European Cup aloft in the sun drenched heat of Lisbon in 1967 has always been distinctive in my mind. In 2012, I would have the privilege of leading the Hoops out the tunnel with Scott Brown as Celtic Mascot. As I stood in the foyer at Hampden Park I did not know what it was going to be like walking out into a crowd of fifty-thousand people. As the dignitaries strolled into the National Stadium I spotted a formidable figure, but he had already spotted me. Billy along with his wife Liz came over and started chatting to me and my parents. He had noticed my Celtic zipper and decided to stop for a quick chat. I was totally in awe of the figure that was standing directly in front of me chatting away. Integrity was most definitely Billy’s watchword and on this day I saw that on display at its finest. I had the chance to tell Cesar that I had written a letter about him in primary school and that he was my hero. He shrugged of anything complimentary I said about him and spoke away to me as if I was a long lost friend. Fortunately, I have met Billy and Liz on a few occasions after this meeting. It was an absolute honour to share a page with Billy in the newspaper as well as in the Celtic View on the 50th Anniversary of Celtic’s greatest achievement. I look back at the couple of hours spent in both there company and feel very privileged as these are memories that will leave with me forever. As a player, Billy McNeilll was Celtic’s greatest captain, leader and motivator who brought so much joy to so many people’s lives. He achieved everything that anybody could wish for in football but continued to be a total gentleman that never wavered in his devotion to his beloved Celtic. In the 131 year old history of this great football club many players have came and gone, but standing tall and proud at the start of the Celtic Way will be the man known as Cesar that is loved by everyone who will remain immortal forever.

     Your the reason celtic fans have the memories and the team have the support they do today. True man of steel and captain of the 67 L,Lions. Fortunately to havin crossed palms with you twice and you never let me down. shine bright big man YNWA

     Martin Miller
     Billy,I was taken to a game at Shawfield v Clyde around 68,after being at Celtic Park when you came home with the European Cup.I was 7 years old,the world was in black,white, and grey then,but seeing those green and white hoops made my eyes open wide,and that was me a Celtic supporter. A couple of years later, i was in The Jungle, the sense of anticipation, when the ball was going to Jinky,still makes the hairs on my neck stand up.Even then,I could see the leadership and standards you set for the team,which i still want to this day.The Lions were remarkable in so many ways,a true band of brothers, every one i met could hold court and tell their stories, but they always knew, you were their leader.I was fortunate to meet you on a few occasions, once in Lisbon with Martyn,and you took us round the stadium, and told us how the game played out,it was truly magical. Whenever you were meeting fans,you had a 6th sense,that they were meeting you and would be nervous,and within 30 seconds, we would be at ease,as if we knew you all your life You will always be our leader and the figurehead of Celtic Football Club. We are so proud of the way you represented our Club,and the values and traditions we hold close.Liz and the family are so proud of you and have been a great support all your life,I am heartbroken, as when you are growing up, you think your heroes,will never die. You are always in our hearts,and always will be.My favourite Celtic player is Danny McGrain (its an age thing,don't be offended), but you will always be The Greatest Celt of All Time. Billy McNeilll You Will Never Walk Alone, and we were so lucky,that you were one of us.Hail Hail

     Ross Gilfillan

     Mark McGuire
     They say you should never meet your heroes.... Absolute rubbish! I met my hero a number of times and was blown away each time by his manner, his humbleness, his generosity of his time and by his down to earth demeanor. This was Billy McNeilll. He's the same age as my dad so he was his hero first! Him and my uncle went every week to watch the lions (never made it to Lisbon as my mum was heavily pregnant, my brother was born on 31/05/67 and he still blames them both for their timing ) I started going to games in the 80's and so at seventeen in 1988 the centenary season was the biggest thing in my life. To win the league then the Scottish Cup in the manner we did came from Billy. His style of football, his will to win, his work ethic to go right to the final whistle. That's what leaders do. On the pitch and off. He gave me one of the best years of my life and for this I'm eternally grateful. Rest well Billy, you have more than earned it. Hail Hail my hero

     I interviewed Billy at high school for an anniversary celebration. He was a complete gentleman, took longer than was planned to answer questions, and had a genuine interest in being there. He's the only Lisbon Lion I've had the privilege of meeting and for that reason he'll always have a special place in my Celtic memories.

     Deepest condolences to the McNeilll family at this very sad time. Billy was one of my late husband Frank's idols, Frank was 13 when Billy lifted the European Cup, but every single time he saw the footage as an adult during our 35 year marriage it brought tears to his eyes. Another big idol was Jinky and I love to imagine him getting to meet his heroes in the "other" Paradise. I hope you find comfort in the obvious love and affection that people feel for Billy.. With kindest regards xx

     David Craig
     For many years Billy was the heart and soul of celtic. Always had a lot of pride when playing for the hoops. Always remembered as being the 1st British Captain to hold the European Cup aloft.

     Mark Fleming
     I was lucky enough to meet Mr McNeilll twice. On both occasions he showed the genuine man of the people that he was. He was generous and tolerant toward anyone who spoke to him and was incredibly self effacing. I asked him what it had felt like to captain that great side and to lift the European Cup. His reply was typical of the man. " To be honest with you, we were just a bunch of friends having a great time playing football". What a classy comment. I will miss you and the world is a colder and darker place without you.

I can still see Billy being interviewed after the 1989 cup final from the terrace which was a magical day. Really privileged to have named our club Billy Mc Neill CSC an Omaigh and have him and Liz in attendance at a dinner dance many years ago. An inspirational leader who will be remembered forever. May he rest in peace Ar dheis De go raibh a anam.

     Had the pleasure of having a few drinks with Billy and Tommy G in Dublin a few years back. To say the crack we got out of the two of them is an understatement! Always one of my fondest going out memories. Not only the fact having a drink with two legends but the fact they were only too willing to spend some quality time with myself and friends.... Humble, humility. No sense of of any self importance... Wonderful memory Thanks Billy ... Ar Dheis go raibh anam agus Hail hail ...

     Never saw Billy play but saw him lead Celtic to victory the first 3 games I ever saw Celtic play .....I got to see the first Lisbon Lion...it was great to see a guy your father talked about. it was something else. I was channeling Billy the day I walked onto Estadio Nacional in 2007 days before the 40th anniversary. spine tingling watching the spot where he lifted the cup Of course he will be missed by the Celtic family and more importantly his own and that is where my best wishes go. A Canadian bhoy who grew up on the stories of the Lions is saddened to see the Lion King leave us. Hail Hail Cesar YNWA

     My memories of Billy McNeilll, are of a gentleman on and off the pitch. It was towards the end of his playing days, but he was always a fierce competitor, he never shirked anything, like his friend John Greig. As Manager he had great times as well, especially the Centenary season, the never say die attitude of his players. I never had the pleasure of ever meeting 'Cesar' , I wish I had. Billy you never had a bad word for any player or team, and its that gentlemanly conduct I'll never forget. You're flying high now Billy with your team mates & The Boss. R.I.P MR McNeilll. YNWA.

     Joseph Duffy

     Devastating to hear the news about Billy McNeill a legend of the club and working class men signed as a 17 year old and made captain at a very young age he was a leader of men and stood for so much!! First Man in the UK to lift up the European Cup and won almost 30 trophies as both player and manager!! Met him once while I was gigging and shared a whiskey with him when I was finished an absolute gentleman to talk to and just a pleasure to have been in his presence!! Another Lion Taken too soon HAIL CESAR

     I got to meet Billy McNeilll at his pub off Victoria Road year’s ago. He was so down-to-earth and chatty despite my being star struck. I never got to see him play but I remember him as the Celtic manager, winning the Double in 1988. My dad would take me to see that Celtic side play. To me he is symbolic of a true captain, a true hero, a true legend. RIP Cesar.

     I was 4 years old when the Hoops lifted the Big cup. My dad used to take my brother and me to see the home games, 5 of us squeezed into a Morris Minor! It was my dad's mate and his son too. Saw the Lions before the inevitable break up, but Cesar was there through the transition, showing the Quality Street Kids the Celtic Way. A great player a great manager and a great manager...but most of all a great man. Hail Cesar

     The greatest Celt of them all. Stuck with the club through some bad days initially , captained it to its greatest victories, did the same as manager and all the while with the same dignity he showed in illness. Never shirked a challenge either. No trophy in eight yearsBilly stepped up and scored the winner in 1965. Take over from the legendary Big JockBilly stepped up again and brought us back to the top. Take up the challenge laid down across town with a fraction of the money and deliver centenary successBilly led us again and created more history. A humble and decent man. A legend. A huge loss....

He was everything that is amazing about our club. He is a sad loss but yet will live on as a legend forever . Goodnight Cesar, rest in peace  Xxx

     I was in hospitality with a mate in the Sky box where Billy was host. Loads of ex players came in to watch the game from other hospitality, Bertie, John Fallon, George McLuskey and more. Everyone of them addressed Billy as Cesar or boss. Celtic where about to bring on Evander Sno and because you are right above them Bertie was shouting Cesar come and see the size of these feet, Everyone was in stitches including Billy. When it was time to go Billy was still there mixing. My mate was phoning his wife to pick us up and Billy overheard this, he asked where are you from, we’re from Paisley we said. Billy said tell you’re wife not to bother and offered us a lift to Central. We were to awestruck to accept (dafty’s we were) always regret how good that would have been Cesar driving us from Celtic Park through the city. My mate and I would have been fighting to see who got in the front. What a man, what a legend MAY HE REST IN PEACE

     Simply the best - that was Billy McNeilll. As a player he was a colossus, as a captain, motivational, as a supporter, 100% committed, as a Celt, peerless. When will we see his likes againMaybe never. Thanks for the memories - may you rest in peace.

     I didnt get to see Billy play he was a giant from the videos and highlights I have seen ,that iconic image of him lifting the big cup in 67 is a picture I have always treasured it is an image that will be permanently on me as a tattoo in the near future Billy was not just a Celtic man through and through but he was known world wide and quite rightly so he will be sorely missed by all that had the pleasure to know him and he will be known and spoke about in high regard not from myself but from all the Celtic family. Thoughts and prayers for all his family and friends rest easy Cesar hail hail

     Rest in peace to Celtic’s greatest. I was only 11 when Billy lifted the European cup and I remember the elation and celebrations to this day. My Father, a lifelong Celtic supporter, sadly passed away leaving Celtic park following a game and the priest in his home town in Donegal said he left one Paradise to go to another. This can also be said of Billy, reunited now with the Lions gone before.. Deepest sympathy to his family and friends. He will never be forgotten by the Celtic family for he gave so much to us all. A legend in every sense of the word.

     The word Legend is used to often these days. We met in St Andrews and i have a treasured Photo with a group of us behind you and Liz. Special day and what a Special couple. How Liz managed all those Years with us supporters always wanting your time i do not know. Liz you are a Legend too. For me and all of the Celtic family Billy you were a TRUE Legend and Liz and the Family thankyou for giving us all the time we had with Billy. Much love to you all. I do not exaggerate when i say that what Billy and the Lisbon Lions achieved was more of an achievement than Man Landing on the Moon.

     Dave Sim
     The word "Legend" has become a cliche of late. However, it does not even come close to describe what Billy was to football in general and Celtic in particular. He was a colossus on and off the field. We played Barcelona at Celtic Park and standing near the front door was a group of teenagers in Barca gear and talking in Catalan, clearly with their official party. Billy Billy was making his way in, getting pictures taken and signing autographs. One to the Barca group shouts "It's Billy McNeilll" and they rushed forward as one to get his signature. Rest In Peace Cesar. We are poorer for your passing but richer for the memories you created for us. Thoughts and prayers to your family.

     Such sad news. What a Gentleman he was. I met him in his pub in the mid 1990s when I travelled on the GPO CSC bus and was surprised when he remembered me 10 years later when we met by chance outside Celtic Park. My sympathies go to his family.

     I remember meeting Billy twice. First time on 2006 Celtic convention in Benidorm. What a guy. I got my top signed from everyone with my permanent marker and he used someone's else's wipe away to sing it. I stuck it in the wash and it disappeared. I then met him when he was signing his Cesar dvd in the old Celtic shop in braehead and he signed that for me just as the shop was shutting and me and my mate Frankie managed to get a 5 minute chat with him. Never seemed to be in a rush. We will miss you Captain Celtic. YNWA

     My first Celtic game in 1975 turned out to be Billy's last. Even at the age of ten the significance of seeing Billy play was not lost on me. This was the man who lifted the European Cup. He was part of the very fabric of Celtic and Scottish culture. He was a giant, a hero, a legend. Thanks Billy for giving dreams in spades to wee boys like me. My deepest condolences go to the McNeilll family, but, by God, you must be proud.

     I was a very lucky bhoy that I grew up during the 9 in a row era and all our European success and what a time that was to be a Celtic supporter awesome just awesome I was also very fortunate to live next door to a lady called Maureen Gregor who was Jock Steins PA at the time and Maureen was so kind to me in supplying me with all the photographs and autographs of all the teams and European teams that came to visit Paradise and she always had such kind words to say about Big Billy who would assist her in getting the opposition teams to sign there team photos for me As you grow older you appreciate how lucky you are that the captain of Celtic took time out to get you an autograph of players of Inter and AC Milan Leeds Utd and to many more to mention I have also many abiding memories of Big Billy lifting so many trophies it just became the norm for us supporters at that time. Than you Billy for all you did for our club our people our religion and our country you are a colossus

     Unfortunately I'm too young to remember Billy as a player or a manager. What I do remember is growing up understanding that to my father, Billy was not just a footballing hero. He was an inspiration on how to be as a man, he embodied a moral code - it's through that code I learned about honour and responsibility. I'll always be thankfully to Billy for giving so much to the people I love.

     You helped give Celtic such great memories. Hope your family find comfort in those memories now. Rest in peace Billy.

     I had the pleasure of meeting Billy several times at Seamill Hydro in the 80’s. I had a friend who was in the first team and would arrange for me to visit the team with a small group of children I taught. Each had Additional Support Needs. Billy always welcomed us into the hotel grounds, even they were invariably preparing for a major match, and made my special needs kids feel extra special. He was an absolute gentleman, honest, sincere, thoughtful and caring. Thank you for being the wonderful person that you are.

     Raymond Farrelly
     Had the pleasure of meeting Billy McNeilll on a few special occasions and the overwhelming sense I had was that he was such a truly humble man who despite achieving so much in his life, never forgot who he was and where he came from. My thoughts and prayers go out to the McNeilll family and his close friends. Rest in Peace Big Man.

     Patrick McLaughlin
     I met Billy or Mr McNeilll as I called him, in Glasgow airport when we both got off same flight from Malaga.. he was sitting waiting on his wife Liz .. I approached him and before I said anything he said “don’t embarrass me here”, such a humble man unaware of his greatness and affection in which he is held, did not want any attention drawn to him .. I simply said “Mr McNeilll can I shake your hand” and we shook hands, a treasured moment for me,.. RIP Captain, Our Captain

     Dear McNeilll family I'm truly sorry for the loss of Mr McNeilll,life has truly lost a decent human being . From my Grandad and dad I got to hear of the stories of the history of all Celtic player's,Grandad's favourite player was Charlie Tully and my dad was Bertie Auld but what they said was Billy McNeilll was the Leader that made him and his contemporaries and the lions great.He was the glue the mould the roar that made them a great team. He was born a leader of men,a man you just listened to learned went through brick walls and had utter respect for a born winner,but gracious in defeat. I want to thank you personally Mr McNeilll for giving my family and friends but more importantly my great grandad,grandad and dad Joy happiness and trophies galore the celtic way,memories cherished dreams and song's to sing and history passed on to other generations and a lasting legacy for life. Humble Graceful Class,Heaven has gained an angel and a true gentleman YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE HAIL HAIL Cesar.

     Gerard Hamill
     My condolences to Liz, the McNeill Family and Friends. I will always cherish the moment Big Billy scored the winner in the 65 Final. In my opinion, the most important goal in my 60 odd years of watching Celtic. The great Charlie Gallagher crossed the ball and Big Billy rose imperiously and headed the ball into the back of the net, something they did regularly,,especially and most memorably against Voijvodina. While I realise the family will be grieving at the moment, I hope they are sustained by the love our support have for the one and only King Billy. May he rest in peace.

     Jim Mulholland
     You will always be the Captain of Captains at our club. You’ve done the lot and won the lot. I was star struck when I met you, but you were so warm and kind with your time. You are a credit to your entire family in how you conducted yourself throughout your life, on and off the field. They don’t build statues for just anyone. Thank you for everything, Mr McNeilll.

     A Wee Quick Story on The Legend that is Billy McNeilll. 1988,Centenary Season. Me and My big mate, who are 12 at the time, bunk off school one Day a week to See the First Team train at Barrowfield. We jump on the Old Corpi Orange Double Decker from Coatbridge, get off and walk to Barrowfield. On the 3rd week were standing there at the end of the training, all the lads are walking past, Mcstay, Burns etc. Billy starts Walking over to us. "Hello lads",He says. Were Dumbstruck, "Hello Mr McNeilll. " Ive Seen you here the last few weeks every week. Does Your Mum and Dad know your here" " Aye Mr McNeilll". "Were abouts are you from "Coatbridge" "Oh Aye, Coatbridge , Know the place well, Should you not be at School "No were on Holidays". "Holidays Oh thats Great, I can definitely tell you both are From Coatbridge" "Hows that Mr McNeilll" Because thats the place that Everyone sends there kids out to Play during the Holidays wearing there school uniform eh"Us 2 look at each other, blazer, tie on the lot, before we say anything else, "I dont want to see you two here again during the week, Get yourselves to School, Now!!"  A wee moment were The Great Man took his time out to give us pelters for bunking school, We never went back during the week either! RIP Billy. True Captain and Celtic Legend. Forever in All Our Hearts X

     Daniel Kelly Jnr
     Dear McNeilll family I'm truly sorry for the loss of Mr McNeilll,life has truly lost a decent human being . From my Grandad and dad I got to hear of the stories of the history of all Celtic player's,Grandad's favourite player was Charlie Tully and my dad was Bertie Auld but what they said was Billy McNeilll was the Leader that made him and his contemporaries and the lions great.He was the glue the mould the roar that made them a great team. He was born a leader of men,a man you just listened to learned went through brick walls and had utter respect for a born winner,but gracious in defeat. I want to thank you personally Mr McNeilll for giving my family and friends but more importantly my great grandad,grandad and dad Joy happiness and trophies galore the celtic way,memories cherished dreams and song's to sing and history passed on to other generations and a lasting legacy for life. Humble Graceful Class,Heaven has gained an angel and a true gentleman YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE HAIL HAIL Cesar.

     My abiding memories of Billy invariably revolve around my late father, who succumbed to the same awful affliction. I was first taken by my dad to Parkhead, aged 4, 61 years ago. My memories only really came to life at the Cup final in 1965. My 2 main memories of Billy are his winning goal at Hampden that day and, in my view, his greatest ever goal for Celtic against Vojvodina Novi Sad in the quarter final of the Big Cup in March 1967. He will be sorely missed by all of us. The greatest ever Celt. RIP Billy. YNWA.

     Dear McNeilll family I'm truly sorry for the loss of Mr McNeilll,life has truly lost a decent human being . From my Grandad and dad I got to hear of the stories of the history of all Celtic player's,Grandad's favourite player was Charlie Tully and my dad was Bertie Auld but what they said was Billy McNeilll was the Leader that made him and his contemporaries and the lions great.He was the glue the mould the roar that made them a great team. He was born a leader of men,a man you just listened to learned went through brick walls and had utter respect for a born winner,but gracious in defeat. I want to thank you personally Mr McNeilll for giving my family and friends but more importantly my great grandad,grandad and dad Joy happiness and trophies galore the celtic way,memories cherished dreams and song's to sing and history passed on to other generations and a lasting legacy for life. Humble Graceful Class,Heaven has gained an angel and a true gentleman YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE HAIL HAIL Cesar.

     My abiding memories of Billy invariably revolve around my late father, who succumbed to the same awful affliction. I was first taken by my dad to Parkhead, aged 4, 61 years ago. My memories only really came to life at the Cup final in 1965. My 2 main memories of Billy are his winning goal at Hampden that day and, in my view, his greatest ever goal for Celtic against Vojvodina Novi Sad in the quarter final of the Big Cup in March 1967. He will be sorely missed by all of us. The greatest ever Celt. RIP Billy. YNWA.

    So sad for Billy's family, and the world wide Celtic supporter base, for whom a massive light has gone out of their Celtic lives. So many things to be thankful for, so I'll say thanks to Billy for signing my favourite Celtic player, Murdo, who scored the winning goal in the 4-2 title decider at Celtic Park in 1979. RIP Mr McNeill, the most decorated man in Scottish football history. You'll never walk alone.

    I saw Billy play both his first and last games for Celtic and almost all of them in between. As a wee boy growing up in the Gorbals of Glasgow , Celtic Football Club was like a shining beacon for most of that community. I listened to my Dad talk of Jimmy McGrory and a whole host of legends but my early experience was to see Charlie Tully ,Bertie Peacock and Bobby Evans. Gradually the scene shifted and emerged a new, young crop of Celts in the shape of Paddy Crerand,Mike Jackson,John Divers,Jim Kennedy,Duncan McKay and Billy McNeil. There was also a young Bertie Auld. I loved Celtic for its history and its style and because it gave focus and pride to an underdog community. The football was always entertaining and the people who supported Celtic were the salt of the earth. During those barren late 1950s and early 1960s Celtic could win nothing but they were developing a young group of players whose natural leader was Billy McNeil.He was not the most gifted of players but terrific in the air, great at tackling back but most importantly he was a born leader on and off the field. I look back over my Celtic supporting years which now stretch something like 67 years and reflect on terrific times ( I attended the 7-1 League Cup Final ,Lisbon,Milan,Seville ,10-men won the league ) but when I focus hard I still see Billy scoring that epoch changing goal against Dunfermline in 1965. Arguably the most important Celtic goal in its long and proud history. From that day everything changed. God bless Billy McNeill and May he rest in peace. He will always be remembered .

    Billy McNeill is a Celtic great, he played with and lead the best team we ever had and he was our greatest ever captain, but above all of this is the fact that he was wonderful human being, Someone from humble beginnings who worked hard to achieve what he did, always seemed to get his priorities in life right, put others before himself and had a level of honesty and integrity that we should all aspire to have. He will be remembered by so many and will always be an inspiration to those who share the true values of life.

We would carry the balls or other equipment then act as ball boys at the ground. You always thanked us and made us feel special for helping out. God bless ye Billy, yir some man!

    Not only a great leader on theach pitch but at a time when football was full of great players. The double in the Centenary season adds to the legend. NEVER BE FORGOTTEN, as long as there is a Celtic fc people will know who King Billy McNeill was. A real legend

    William 88
    Saw the 1965 cup final on black & white TV. As a young boy I was amazed with those hooped shirts, even in black & white. Then Big Billy scored and that was me hooked on Celtic and Billy McNeill.. Whenever as kids we got picked to play in a football team I was always first to say to everyone, I want to be Billy McNeill. Met the great man at Celtic park a few years ago where he and two other Lions were attending a function. I was in my 50s and still in awe of the big man but managed to get a photo taken with him. (Taken by Stevie Chalmers by the way). Made my day!! What a decent down to earth, friendly man. Condolences to the McNeill Family. RIP big man.

    I met Billy 3 times. The first time I was 7 years old and Billy was opening the summer fete of St Paul’s in Ayr . As my dad was the in SVDP , I got my picture taken with Billy. The second and third times were just after Billy had retired and was helping out with Celtic BC . He drove down to our house unannounced to sign me for Celtic but unfortunately Ally Macleod had just signed me as an ‘S’ form with Ayr Utd. I had to go to training with Ayr and left Billy and my dad chatting . When I got home after training , my dad said that he had just left ! Two and a half hours later. The 3rd time was a few weeks afterwards when my Ayr team beat the Celtic team that he was in charge of . He came looKing for me and said ‘ I knew we should have signed you’ I was in awe of the man then and when I was an adult and saw him in the street and in death , he was noble, honest, articulate and everything that any person aspired to be. God bless Cesar

    What a player, man and Leader. An absolute LEGEND. Thoughts and Prayers with his Family.

    Tommy Collin
    Thank you Billy. So many memories. Life was tough being a Celtic fan between 1957 and 1965. No trophies, no hope in sight, despite there being the nucleus of a good team. Along came Jock Stein, life changed. Your iconic header against Dunfermline in the Scottish Cup Final of 1965 was the start of something special. Again, against Vojvodina, your magnificent header helped us on to victory. I was in the middle of the jungle that night. Never seen such bedlam when the ball hit the back of the net. I hitch-hiked to Lisbon and met you and the rest of the lads at the Palacio Hotel in Estoril, never forget that moment. Finally, that iconic picture of you in Lisbon holding the cup aloft will remain in my memory forever. God bless and may you rest in peace alongside, Ronnie, Tommy, Bobby and Jimmy.

    Andy Reid
    Thank you Billy for all the special memories. Such a wonderful man. An inspiration to us all. YNWA. God bless.

    Paul Hare
    Billy: You retired only a few weeks after I was born, so I have no memories of you as a player. But I remember you as the manager of the centenary double team and, above all, for your kindness and warmth whenever I worked as Italian interpreter at the official lunches for visiting teams. It was a privilege to be in your company on these occasions. You always used to compliment me on my work, and I often felt like saying to you: "Give me a break, Billy - what I'm doing is nothing. Every time I see a photo of you, you're holding the European Cup aloft!" I will always cherish the tales of the Lisbon Lions but, equally, I'll cherish the times I spent in your wonderful company. You were the ultimate gentleman, and your legend will live forever.

    I was born in 68 and missed Billy as a player... but I knew the history growing up and knew exactly how much Billy McNeill meant to Celtic and vice versa... He simply was Mr Celtic, A loyal and proud leader of Celtic FC as Captain & Manager. A Legend who will never be forgotten. Sincere condolences to Liz and family and all of Billy's friends. R.I.P Cesar. I was leaving Celtic Park after a game with my son & daughter a few years ago. My son ( 8 or 9 at the time) asked me why were there so many fans gathered around the man that was standing at an exit gate of the main stand. I had a look across and realised it was Billy McNeill... as we made our way across I told my son about who Billy McNeill was and just how much he meant to the fans and the club. Even though Billy was not in the best of health, he made time to speak to my son & daughter and had a photo taken with them.... the photo is in a frame in our house. Billy always represented all that was good about our club, he was a great ambassador for Celtic FC.... Hail, Hail Billy & Rest in Peace.

    A legend of a man. I was a young boy growing up at the time of the Lisbon Lions and marvelled at this bunch of home grown Scotsmen lifting the European Cup and consequently dominating the domestic game led by the fearless McNeill. Living in Bellshill I felt Billy was one of our own even though I didn't support Celtic he was definitely a hero to me.I met Billy a few years later in his pub in Mossend and he was a true gentleman who was modest of his legacy despite being a true footballing great. RIP

    My father started taKing me to see Celtic when I was 5 years old, in 1964, however my first memory of them wasn't until May 25th 1967 when you, Billy lifted the European Cup in Lisbon. Ever since then I wanted to be you, I was never interested in being a Jimmy Johnstone a Kenny Dalglish or more recently Henrik Larsson. I wanted to be a centre half and a number 5 and did indeed play in that position although not to the same extent as you but I was always trying to play the game the way did. I even spent may mins at every class at Our Lady's High in Motherwell looking for signs of your presence. You will be sadly missed by everyone, one bhoy, one man, one club, one hero, one legend, may you rest in peace.

    John Nolan
    As a 7yo, I was two rows away when you lifted the cup in your last game in 1975. Rest in Peace, big man.

    Imperious, driven, towering. A leader for all time. For a lad from Bellshill, the journey was long and hard but the memories forged while battling adversity legendary. The greatest representation of the soul of Celtic was present on the 25th May 1967 and there could have been no other Captain.

    Sandra
    Many times the name of Billy McNeill and his Lisbon Lions was heard in our home. Fab memories where created by that team to live forever. The last few days although tinged with sadness have brought them back. Thoughts and prayers for Cesar's family and all Celtic followers. YNWA

    Kay Donachy
    Still heartbroken that we no longer have our Living Legend with us even though I appreciate it may be a blessing. I was lucky enough to have PA-ed for Mr McNeill when he last managed Celtic and loved that his connection to the club and supporters was so strong that he wanted to personally dictate replies to the letters he received. Also, he had an incredible sense of duty and dignity, a notable example of which, after being dismissed, was him going to each of his Celtic Park colleagues to say goodbye personally, the sound of sobbing from the offices as he left was proof of the affection and high regard in which he was held. I treasure my memories of a man who was both imposing and gracious. Hail Hail to the mighty Pride of Lions in Paradise!

    Dennis Gourley
    I just first of all just want to pass on my deepest and most sincere condolences to Billy's family, we have you all in our thoughts and prayers.

    thanks for everything Billyand rest in peace.

    Paul Mcconkey
    I’ve always known Billy McNeill! I grew up in a house of Celtic supporting Mum, Dad and big Sister! Everyone had met Big Billy several times, but none more than Dad, who had the privilege of meeting him through his relationship with Celtic (pools agent and season ticket holder) but also through his 30 years of charitable work (mainly SVDP) Big Billy signed balls and various items for Dad but there was never a sense of ‘I’m doing you a favour’ He was the most humbling man you’d ever meet! The first time I can remember meeting him was at chapel, St Joseph’s in Helensburgh iirc. We weren’t aware straight away but when it came to ‘peace be with you’, my friends and I were faced with the centenary team...and Big Billy! Suffice to say it took quite some time to get around everyone and enjoy the moment of shaKing each and every hand, which Father thankfully acknowledged! As for us, we didn’t wash our hands for weeks! Since then I’ve been lucky enough to meet Big Billy at restaurants, football matches (his grandson and my Bhoy played at the same venue) and, of course, at Paradise! When he greets you it’s a big, hearty handshake and the kindest of words! If it’s a photo, he puts his arm around you and squeezes your shoulder so tightly you’d swear you were family! He truly made you feel like the most important person in the room, despite the fact that HE was the VIP! The first time he met my Bhoy he knelt down and grabbed him as if he was his own grandchild! 3 generations who have been on the receiving end of such unquestionable kindness, such instantaneous appreciation and love! (certainly from our side but you’d swear he felt the same) A truly remarkable human being who made everyone around feel special, like the most special person on the planet! As for what he did for my / our beloved CelticThat can never be put into words or quantified! He gave me, my Dad, my Bhoy, everyone...everything! Big Billy McNeill is and always will be the embodiment of Celtic Football Club, our supporters and everything we stand for! He is a phenomenal loss and the likes of which we will never see again! I’m only grateful that my Dad witnessed his greatest moments on the pitch (incl Vojvodina and almost being knocked down by the returning Lions on Londond Rd as he finished work), that I witnessed his greatest moments as manager, and that my Bhoy felt his embrace and understands the significance of this truly legendary hero - and that we all had the opportunity to not only meet Cesar, but that he made us feel special in his company! There will never be another like him and we must cherish everything he has given us, forevermore! He will always and forever be a hero to me and millions of others and we must continue to share the tales of his greatness, forevermore! Rest in peace Big Billy, Mr McNeill, the legend of legends! Hail Hail

    Alexander Erskine
    RIP Billy, you were a fantastic player, a great leader and a decent lad. How could I forget your goal in the 4-0 cup final win against Rangers. I was in the Rangers end and yes I am one them. However I am saddened by your passing and am sure you will be flying higher than any angel. God bless Billy.

    John Mccooey
    Captain of a team that all came from the Glasgow area and in an era when no overpaid mercenaries prevailed. Captain of a team from Scotland - with Irish roots - he became the first player from these islands to lift the iconic European Cup (now the Champions League Cup) and became immortal in football history. Great club, great team, great captain - one word - LEGEND.

    Patrick Hamill
    Had the pleasure of meeting Billy with my young son around 17 years ago. He was so polite and genuinely happy chatting to us. Many others will have far greater stories of Billy but to me, those thirty seconds or so will always be remembered fondly as we were in awe of being in the presence of a legend. Billy will never be forgotten. Legends like him live forever. My grandchildren and their children will hear about the greatest Celt I ever had the pleasure of seeing. They will bleed green and white too! Sincerest condolences to Liz and the McNeill family. I hope they take comfort in how we all thought of Cesar. #HH

    Archie Mackay
    We are all born Celtic fans, but my first regular season following Celtic around the country was 87/88, when Billy's team became the first to win the double in their club's Centenary season. I had the great privilege of being there, at Celtic Park, when the title was won and at Hampden when the Bhoys went up to lift the Scottish Cup. It was as unforgettable to me as the European Cup win was to the generation before, but the constant in both was our leader, Billy McNeill. Billy, you join the immortals. You are our leader, and you aways will be. Hail Hail, Cesar.

    Growing up my grandad read me books, told me stories and spoke passionately about all things Celtic. He lived in Bellshill and was proud to say he was from where Billy was, showing us all where Billy grew up whenever we passed. I looked up to my grandad and he had a stature and presence like Billy with green and white through his veins. Images of Billy in Lisbon are iconic and my grandad watched him lift the big cup aloft in the heat of Lisbon. It’s a comfort knowing my grandad now has Billy up with him and he can talk all things Celtic with his hero. God bless Billy McNeil, Glasgow Celtic and Granda Doc, together in paradise.

    Billy was the greatest Celtic captain of the greatest Celtic side. He was a tremendous manager and the only man who could have led us on the park to Lisbon, 9 In A Row and delivered the Centenary season Double. "A fairytale" indeed. Growing up in a Celtic family in the 1960s & 70s, to us he was Mr Celtic. Respect to The McNeill family. Rest well, big man x

    Apart from the obvious, iconic moment on 25 May 1967, my first ever game was the 1965 Scottish Cup Final. Watching Billy score the winner, lead his teammates to collect their medals and thrusting the trophy to the sky to the adoring fans is my abiding memory of Billy. God speed big man. HAIL HAIL Just recalled part of a 'poem' I wrote after that game, "There he goes, all green and white To receive the cup all clean and bright......"

    Condolences to the McNeill family on the loss of an irreplaceable man to such an unforgiving illness. I had the pleasure of being in Billy's company an number of years back and he was a true gentleman. More recently my 13 year old son was lucky enough to have Billy pose with him for a quick photo at Celtic Park and he again was the perfect gent who made a young boy and his father very happy. I'll treasure the photo. Rest in peace, Cesar, you'll live forever in the story of this Club.

    My Da (Tam Findlay) passed away last year with cancer at the age of 70 . On his last few days he still wanted to watch the Celts. We had a family huddle with my Da shouting out "Hail Hail" My Da loved Billy McNeill (Caesar) and the Glasgow Celtic with all his heart. The Lisbon Lion's. May you rest in peace Billy. I know you will be in great company up above. God Bless Claire and Janet Findlay. xxxx

    Frank Daly
    It is April 1965, my father, as it turns out, is suffering from the cancer that took him in August of that year. The last game he saw, with a 9 year old me, was the cup final decided by the classic combination of Charlie Gallagher and Our Captain. On the way down from the towering old north stand, a wee drunk old man says to me” Son, you have seen the start of something great today” and presses a 2 bob bit in my hand. My dad said “ just take it pal”. This is not a mere memory, This is part if me. Hail Cesar, we will never see his like again

    Peter Catterson, Trinity Beach, Australia
    My first memory of Billy McNeill is from when I was 5 years and 2 days old: 25 May 1967. I grew up thinKing Celtic always won the league, usually won the Scottish Cup and were in the final of the League Cup every year. And, of course, during my primary school years it was also normal for us to regularly feature in the later stages of the European Cup. Big Billy personified that era. I was lucky enough to be taken to many big games and cup finals by my dad (RIP), culminating in Billy’s last game, the 1975 Cup Final. When he returned as our manager I was old enough to travel to every game as a member of the Johnstone No 1 CSC. Billy’s teams always played with pride the Celtic way. But more than any of his footballing achievements I remember Billy as a truly dignified gentleman, a man of integrity and someone every Celtic person should aspire to be like. He was a true ambassador for the principles and values of our great club. On Tuesday I was on a remote Australian island close to Papua New Guinea when I learned of Billy’s death. I am still heartbroken. I wish I could be at Paradise and St Aloysius over the next week to honour and remember him. Instead I’ll do so from afar. I send my love and prayers to Billy’s wife, Liz, his daughters and his son and his wider family. I mourn your loss and hope that in this difficult time of grief you can take comfort in the esteem in which your husband and dad was held by so many people worldwide. Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen. Requiescat in pace, Billy McNeill. Gone from this life, but never forgotten.

    Ian Mccormack Dublin
    I remember being out with friends celebrating the 1975 cup final win over Airdrie. When starting to make our way home our celebrations were somewhat interupted when we saw the headlines in the early editions of the next mornings papers.- "Billy McNeill announces his retirement". We couldn't believe it, none of us knew a Celtic team without Billy at centre half. At least we had the consolation of knowing that we were there to witness the last game of a man everyone knew was a massive part in the history of our club. Rest in Peace Billy

    My papa always had stories of when the Lisbon Lions brought the cup to paradise... I got him a picture not long before he passed away with all the players on the bus bringing it home. I asked him if he remembered it, he smirked and says ‘remember itI was there’ he then pointed to where he was standing and told me the great memories of that time. Billy not only contributed to Celtic maKing history, he was part of something so special for loads of families over the world talKing about the great times and the pride it brought to everyone. You were truly one of the greats and never to be forgotten Billy. God bless xx

    John Giles Macphee
    My Father, like many, was at Lisbon. I, like many, was born the following Spring. Billy was a man who inspired generations of people. Truly an icon and a Legend. That Gold star shining over the Celtic Way is a light he helped put in all our lives. He will be sadly missed and remembered forever as a truly great and decent man. Thoughts are with his family.

    I watched from the terracing as Big Billy rose to put Celtic 3 - 2 up in the Scottish Cup final of 1965. I was 14 years old, and it was the first time I'd seen Celtic lift a trophy. The moments around that goal are as fresh to me today as they were almost 54 years ago. The noise, the colour, the soaring emotion are with me yet. I was lucky to watch Billy play in numerous games after that, and to lift many more trophies. I'll hold him dear for as long as I remember, and I wish his family peace and some consolation in the loss they are experiencing with his passing.

    Alison
    Rest in peace

    Maggie Andrew
    My Dad started taKing me to watch the Glasgow Celtic when I was about 7 years old with Mr Gillan and his daughter Linda in a wee grey mini van, we travelled all over to watch this Great team. I always wore my wee green knitted poncho and hat for every game (apart from an old firm match my Dad would never take me to that game) so I was lucky enough to watch all the Lisbon Lions play. My favourite player then was Tommy Gemmell (sorry Billy) I was lucky enough to meet Tommy outside Paradise when he had a broken leg and his leg was still in plaster but was so star struck I couldn't talk to him when my Dad took me to say hello. Billy, you and the players since have made my heart soar made me shout with joy and have also made me greet, Big Tam and the rest of the Bhoys will have another Bhoy for a wee game up there. Thank you for the memories, big cuddles to all your family they must be so proud, Hail Hail xxx

    About 9 years ago I took my sons to an event in the Argyle St Celtic shop. They were excited to meet Aiden McGeady. When we went in I noticed Mr McNeillsitting on his own, waiting to sign copies of his book. I said to my boys 'forget Aiden, here's a true legend and took them over to meet him. He could not have been nicer to them. My boys are now 18 and 17 and now know how lucky they were to meet a true great.

    Kevin Mcquade
    Sadness is felt for the McNeill family, and the world wide Celtic family, after the death of our club's greatest captain, the most decorated man in the history of Scottish football, Mr Billy McNeill. Billy, there are so many things to be eternally greatful to you for, way too many to mention. So if you don't mind, I'd like to thank you for bringing my favorite Celtic player to our club, Murdo MacLeod, the player who scored the winning goal in the 4-2 league decider game at Celtic Park, or Parkhead as it was known then, back in 1979. Thank you for everything Mr McNeill. Probably the biggest light in my Celtic supporting life, has now gone out. R.I.P.

    Most sincere condolences to the McNeillfamily and also the extended Celtic Family. To have such an impact on so many people life’s who never knew him personally, is a measure of the man he was. Then add to this, the part he played In the history and achievements of Celtic, then you can only begin to understand the power and reverence that Mr McNeillhad. My dad always spoke of him like a proud father spoke of his son, he held him in the highest of esteem. Requiescat in Pace Billy and thank you for everything

    Billy, when will we see your like againIn truth I am sitting here beside your signed jersey & a photo of The Lions (of whom I am privileged to know another magnificent Celt in wee Bertie). Of all my memories of you strangely, the one to the fore is of you and John Clark at mass in a small Stonehaven church in 1978 where I stood in awe,speechless (believe me that is rare) with my new wife as you sat in the adjacent pew.. The difference now is my eyes are welled-up & my throat lumped. Sincere condolences to Liz and the family R.I.P.

    Karen Mckinley
    Rest in Peace, Billy. A true legend x

When I think of you, I think of my grandad with his hand knitted Tammy and scarf that my Gran made for him, beaming with pride as he celebrated another win. I think of my dad and the twinkle in his eye when we punch above our weight with another famous victory. I think of my sister and my uncles and everyone we’ve lost. And I think there’s going to be some party in the Celtic family in heaven when you get there. Thanks for everything. Hail Cesar

Such a great loss for the full Celtic family Thoughts are with Liz and the rest of his family. RIP CESAR

    Gerry Hart
    I was there that night, aged 7 when the Lisbon lions brought the European Cup back and also when big Billy played his last game against Airdrie in the cup final. I also had the great pleasure of meeting the great man himself at Celtic Park about 12 years ago when at hospitality. What a lovely man. God rest Billy

    James Cant
    I was brought up on my parents’ stories of the Lions. The word that they always used first to describe Billy McNeill was ‘gentleman’. To be the most significant player in the history of Celtic, yet to be even more as a human being........well that’s a life well lived and an example to us all.

    Paul And Joanne Morris. Tain Bhoys Csc Dundalk.

    Tom Knopek
    My first thought is with you, Billy McNeill's family. Normally grief is concealed within a family unit. But when the legend in the house is also a legend in the world, solitude can be hard to find. The world wants to remember him. I assume that as a family you got used to sharing Billy, particularly with the Celtic community, I pray you can find comfort sharing him for one last time. My second thought is selfish. I have lost a great friend. I never met Billy, but I grew up with him. Every Celtic fan knew him as their best mate. He was reliable, honourable and dignified. The world will wax lyrical about his football achievements (and I have rejoiced in them all) but we have lost a gentleman and the world is a poorer place.

    Was at work today when I heard sad news about Cesar, have seen some of tributes now that I’m home.Billy McNeilll gave me 2 of the greatest memories of my life, the 1st as a 9 year old winning the European Cup, the 2nd as a 30 year old winning the Centenery Double, 2 days in my life that I’ll never forget,I’m not a religious man, but if there is any consolation, he’ll be up somewhere leading his brothers again and I’m sure Big Tommy will be giving him a big hug Hail Hail Cesar, in a world where the word “legend” is used as a fleeting adjective, he WAS and IS in the real sense.........thanks for the unforgettable memories

    Remember my first time seeing Billy. Was a student doing Sport and Fitness. Was finished a class at the newly built Ravenscraig Sports Facility. A youth game was taKing place in the big football pitch. As I was walKing out a tall man walked passed me well dressed cream duffel coat. Only to realise it was Billy McNeill. Just wish I spoke to him for a small few minutes. I have watched and heard stories of the Lisbon Lions and the whole story of '67 is so inspiring to hear. The leader, captain and the man to lift the cup was Billy. Although, I wasn't born during the time but I can imagine the scenes away back then. Saturday the game against Kilmarnock I witnessed the goal by Jozo number 5 to score with a header in the 67th minute which I know is a fitting tribute to Billy. Rest in Peace - Billy, Hail Cesar. YNWA. In the Heat of Lisbon the Bhoys came in the thousands just to see the bhoys become champions, '67

I’m a 47 mother of 2 season ticket holders who’d never knew their gran & papa yet I know how proud they would be. My last game as a regular supporter was our 1988 league last game.

    Sam Gallacher
    I agree with Christopher J Stark who said ‘Saw you score that winning goal against Dunfermline in 1965 cup final a game I will never forget the start of a record trophy winning run God bless you Billy you will never be forgotten’ I sat on my dad’s knee at that game and we leapt up with every success starved Celtic supporter at the thought that Celtic were going to become winners. Big Billy was my hero and the inspiration on the field of play to the dawning of a world changing era in football. A year later I was on the beach at Seamill and he walked along and chatted with my family. He was a role model for us to emulate with his good manners. RIP Sam Gallacher

    The first time I ever met Billy was in his bar and I wasn’t starstruck. I was totally Godstruck!! Here was the captain of the Lisbon Lions in front of me, shaking my hand and saying hello to me by name. I was so nervous I was stuck for words and just mumbled back at him, unable to get anything else out. Went away for a few minutes, took a few deep breaths, composed myself and approached him, using the programmes on display on the walls as a conversation piece. He was so friendly, and for a man who was so iconic, had achieved so much and was revered by millions the world over, he was unbelievably humble and down to earth. Still can’t get over that. After chatting to him a few minutes, it was like I had personally known him all my life. What a lovely warm human being, as were the other Lions I met too. Gutted to hear of his passing and I hope he’s happy at his rest. God Bless you Billy. THANK YOU for everything. Big Jock is up there waiting with that number 5 jersey for you. HAIL HAIL!!

    I grew up watching the lion's, who were superbly captained by the king! He went on to lead the team to success and ultimately, the greatest win in the club's history. I didn't know Billy personally, but, watching him and the team every week, we were like a family. Firstly, he was a loving husband and father and grandfather. Secondly, he was Mr Celtic. RIP big man.

    Billy, You’ve gained your angel wings and left an empty void but your memory will remain. I’ve never been lucky enough to see you play football but I’ve seen the videos of your career and you are legendary!! You played against my uncle back in the day after Lisbon and he shares a fond memory of been told it was a ‘young squad’ They all expected it to be a youth side but when the bus pulled in and they saw you walking off behind big jock they knew it wasn’t going to be an easy ride! Can’t mind the score I’d have to ask him but it a touchy subject think a wee bit bitterness from him because he never bet The Lisbon Lions haha!! Your family will carry your name on for many years to come and they should be so proud of the man you are. A true gentleman and very humble but a true legend who will never be forgotten. Go get the tracksuit on Billy and the old boots, get those legs working and be free and complete again with one of your many loves. But always keep a look out over your daring wife and all your family. Hail Hail

    My grandparents were friends with Billy McNeill's mum & dad and I had the pleasure of meeting him through them; he was a gentleman much like his father and his parents pride and joy. He was blessed with many things least of all his wife, children, grandchildren; sincere condolences to those he has left behind. “No man is truly great who is great only in his lifetime. The test of greatness is the page of history.” You will always be remembered and it was a pleasure to know you.

    God Bless Billy. What a Gentleman he was when I met him in the Marine Hotel Ballycastle, years ago. My Rangers supporting pal, Ronnie Holden, R.I.P.,asked me to introduce him to Cesar, and Billy kept him going about supporting the wrong team. It made Ronnie's night, and it made my night. Thanks Cesar. You Will Never Walk Alone.

    Stevie Bhoy
    As some may know, Billy had family in the Cambridge , Ontario area in Canada. On more than one occasion he visited his family here and always made the time to spend time with the local Celtic supporters club. Growing up in East Kilbride in the 60’s, Cesar was my hero.. Having the pleasure to meet him in Canada all those years later blew me away. I treasure the Celtic gear he so graciously signed for me. Mr. McNeill was a gentleman, an icon and a true ambassador for the Celtic Football Club My sincerest condolences to all of Billy’s family. Rest In Peace Big Man. Stephen Welch

    Kevin Gallagher
    Billy McNeill for me was not the Lisbon legend but Celtic manager from when I first went to Celtic Park 1981. His teams played exciting attacking football scoring many goals. He signed great players for both Aberdeen and Celtic- Steve Archibald, Gordon Strachan, Provan, McLeod and McClair spring to mind. Sadly his talents were not backed by the Whyte clan. Allowing Billy to leave in 1983 was unforgivable. His return for our centenary unforgettable. Along with Maley, McGrory and Stein he shaped the clubs first 100 years and made it the great fairytale club it is. Hail hail. Thank you Billy - rest in peace.

    Billy Gallacher
    Thank you for the memories Billy. Rest In Eternal Peace. YNWA.

YNWA X "in the heat of Lisbon" 67

    Tom McCreery
    Thank you Billy. Not just for what you achieved for our club.... you were a pivotal moment in my life when I met you. I will never forget your warmth, stature and the grip on my right shoulder... my wee brother ants was on your left. He couldn’t stop talking about how big you were. I will never forget the joke about the Wallace monument. I was maybe 12. I just hugged you when you cracked a joke that I did. not get till I was older. Thanks Billy. I’ll never forget the way you made me and my brother Ants feel that day.

    Willie Barrett
    The enduring image of you holding the European Cup aloft in Lisbon in 1967 depicts the true message of your career and indeed the lesson of our history is that the challenges are always ahead of us and that the disappointments and adversity fuel the drive to be the very best. You and Celtic proved the potential of this wonderful institution that we are privileged to support. RIP Big Billy .

    May you be at the other end for the rest of the Lisbon lions big man , legend

    Paul B
    A terrible loss to his family and friends, and also to the club and its entire fabric. Had the pleasure of meeting you on a few occasions, including once as an 18year old in a friend's home. I was awestruck, standing in front of me was Cesar, the man who lifted the European Cup, captained the greatest 11 Scotsmen to ever play the beautiful game, who'd managed the team I followed since a bairn. You shook my hand and we chatted for five or ten minutes, no airs or graces about you. In later life I'd occasionally bump into you, and always said hello and a quick natter. Not only great as a footballer, but as a human being, who always had time. May your family find solace in the words which many will write of you. Hail Cesar YNWA

    Gerrard rooney

    Joseph Dodds.
    I would like to take this opportunity to give my sincere thoughts to Liz and family for the sad passing of Billy after such a Brave and Outstanding battle with such a terrible illness. I used to work as office junior with J.H.Lewis and Partners that arranged all the teams charter flights and was always at the Park to bring travel tickets etc. I just loved going to all the games to see amazing football and to become friends with Agnes and the late James Johnstone. For me that team will always be remembered and never forgotten. I will always be part of the Celtic family. You are in my thoughts and prayers, Take Care. Joseph Dodds. Grandson of Celtic player Joe Dodds. [email protected] 07/05.19.

    Alessandro boretti - Verona - Italy
    Dear family McNeill I met your Billy on May 9th 1988, as a teenager I arrived at Celtic Park after a 2 day trip by train from Verona (Italy). When I asked for him to a pic, he understood I wasn’t a local, so after he listened to me he was full of praise, asking about my local football team (who is the manager, who is the big player, etc). I gave him a club pennant, and he assure he put into his office. And he did shake my hand as a father. And when I asked to meet again as I brought over a group of friends to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Lisbon, he receiving later my letter, he answered apologizing he was unable to meet. This letter is in my house and told to my sons is like a gem, sent to me by a real gentleman! Sorry for my bad idiom. Yours sincerely Alessandro Boretti - Presidente of the Italian Celts csc
