Tommy Burns 1956-2008

Legendary Celtic footballer, who had a spell managing the club, succumbed to skin cancer.

Well-loved in the world of football, he scored more than fifty goals for Celtic in a career that lasted nearly twenty years. Less successful as a manager, he found it tough going managing the Bhoys, and his spell at Reading south of the border was short-lived.

Although a candidate for the role as Scotland boss, he never took the job, preferring to work at Celtic Park as a coach. Sadly missed.
