Celtic Centenary hero tests positive during SFA testing chaos

FORMER CELTIC player and Assistant Manager Billy Stark has tested positive for COVID-19 in the aftermath of the Scotland v England U19 game this afternoon. The game was underway with England leading 3-1 when the results revealed that Stark had contracted the highly infectious disease.

Stark, who played in the Centenary Team of 1988, is the U19’s Head Coach tested positive after the SFA allowed the game to go ahead despite results not having received all test results. In a statement on the SFA website, they confirmed that Stark tested negative in the first test but was positive for the test with a view to Sunday’s game.

In three seasons with Celtic, Stark won two Scottish Cups and a League Championship before joining Kilmarnock. Stark joined Tommy Burns at the club as Assistant Manager in 1994. During his time as Assistant, the pair ended Celtic’s trophy drought in 1995 with a win over Airdrie in the Scottish Cup; however, they weren’t able to win the league despite running financially-doped Rangers very close.

Speedy recovery, Billy.
