GIULIANO SARTI, the legendary Inter Milan goalkeeper and the Man of the Match in the European Cup Final in Lisbon in 1967 has died.
Sarai, who was 83, faced 42 attempts at his goal and held out for an incredibly long period before goals from Tommy Gemmell, who passed away earlier this year, and Stevie Chalmers settled the final in Celtic’s favour.
However had it not been for Sarti it could have been a cricket score.
Football has lost another legend. The thoughts and prayers of the Celtic family are with his family and friends at this sad time.
