Video: Hauntingly beautiful footage of Billy McNeill Statue in the snow

Billy McNeill’s statue at Celtic Park is a fantastic tribute to one of the greatest ever Celtic men. The image of him standing proud as he lifts the European Cup trophy will be etched in the minds of every fan for generations to come, as they walk up the Celtic Way.

The unveiling, which Billy was present at, was a poignant moment. And now that the great Celt is sadly no longer with us, it is even more beautiful to see scenes such as this outside Paradise.

What an incredible moment to capture on film.

About Author

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic as a young child during the Martin O'Neill era. Still living on the south coast, I have a season ticket at Paradise and also travel to European away matches when possible. At the age of 19, I published my first Celtic book (Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support). Then, last year, I published my second book (Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events), which is sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores.
