CELTIC fans will have the opportunity to say a final farewell to club great John ‘Yogi’ Hughes at Parkhead this afternoon.

The Requiem Mass will be held at St Mary’s, in the Calton district of Glasgow, at 12.30pm and, following the service, the cortege will then make its way to Celtic Park at approximately 1:45pm.

Hoops followers who wish to pay their last respects are encouraged to arrive at The Celtic Way outside Celtic Park for 1.30pm in time for the cortege passing Paradise.

TRIBUTE…Celtic fans pay their respects to club great John Hughes in Dingwall at the weekend.

John’s family have intimated that a fitting tribute would be the wearing of some green to acknowledge John’s Celtic connection and lifelong love of the club.

The service will be broadcast on Celtic TV and the club’s official YouTube channel for those who cannot be at Parkhead but wish to pay respects to a legendary Celt.

Big Yogi, the eighth-highest scorer at Celtic with 189 goals in his 12-year career after signing at the age of 16 from Junior club Shott Bon Accord in 1959, passed away on Monday, August 1 at the age of 79 after a short illness.
