TOMMY GEMMELL’S FINAL FAREWELL

1
TOMMY GEMMELL, who passed away on Thursday morning at the age of 73, will make his final bow at Celtic Park on Friday.
The Lisbon Lion’s funeral procession will leave Parkhead at 11.30am on its way to Daldowie Crematorium in Uddingston.
A family friend said: “It was one of Tommy’s final wishes to go back to Celtic Park one last time.
“It is a marvellous gesture from Celtic Football Club and greatly appreciated by his wife Mary, family and friends.”
A huge turn-out is expected for one of the club’s most popular players.
European Cup-winning team-mate Bertie Auld, 78, said: “Parkhead was always Big Tommy’s spiritual home.
“He was a Celtic man through and through.
“The club and the supporters meant everything to him.
“It is fitting he will get this last opportunity to go to the stadium where he gave so many people so much pleasure.”
