    Watched a few of his goals and some Palace one's they put up as well..

    What a handful he looked and technically excellent, had a turn of pace and could skin *'s..

    He would've been a real good 9 in today's game..

    The funeral of Celtic legend, John Hughes will take place this Friday, and the cortege will pass Celtic Park following the Requiem Mass.

    The Mass will be held at St Mary’s, Calton on Friday, August 12 at 12.30pm, and following the service, the funeral cortege will then make its way to Celtic Park at approximately 1:45pm.

    The service will be broadcast on Celtic TV and the club’s official YouTube channel for those who can’t be at Celtic Park on the day but who still want to pay respects to a Hoops hero and a fellow Celtic supporter.

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

    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 for those in attendance on Friday.

    Big Yogi, who was a star of the golden years of the club in the 1960s and an all-time Celtic great, passed away on Monday, August 1 at the age of 79.

    The thoughts and prayers of everyone at Celtic Park are with John’s family and friends at this sad time.
