Celtic suffered another tragic loss last Monday with the passing of Stevie Chalmers.
For two Lisbon Lions to go within a week of each another is extremely saddening.
Obviously, your heart goes out to the families of Billy McNeill and Stevie as they will feel it the most.
But it must be tough for the surviving Lisbon Lions to see yet another one of their close friends pass away.
It’s a reminder to them, and to us all, that we should live life to the full and treasure every moment.
Stevie was a total gentleman.
His goal in the 1967 European Cup Final has made him a legend and immortal in footballing terms.
The impact he made on Celtic FC will never be forgotten.
I was in Glasgow on Friday for Billy McNeill’s funeral, and the send-off he was given was fitting and truly memorable.
The streets of Glasgow were lined with people paying their respects.
A few of them were from the other side of the Old Firm divide, which is the way it should be.
Stevie’s funeral will be more low key, but he will still be given the send-off he deserves, by his family, Celtic FC and the supporters.
