    Can't believe its 8 years already, I watched his DVD a couple of weeks ago and sat crying for ages, he epitomised everything Celtic stands for and he will never be forgotten. :shamrock:

    Went to the airport with my ma and da to pick Tommy and Davie Provan back in the early 90s. They were attending a function here. They came to our house for a cuppa. I felt like we were picking up two uncles. They both had big suit bags over their arms with the Umbro and club crest. I would still love one of those. Met Tam several times and my da and his mate would speak regularly on the phone with TB. Happy Birthday Thomas Burns.

    I remember when he died even the vast majority of Huns were genuinely shocked and saddened to hear it. I think that spoke volumes for the type of man he was.

    The story about how he 'helped' Ian Ferguson through an Old Firm game is also astonishing.

    RIP Tommy, the world is genuinely a worse off place without you.

    The word legend is thrown about too much nowadays for my liking, but this man truly is one, and more.

    Gentleman and 'One of us'.

    * bless Tommy.
