We lost Tommy Burns ten years ago today. Tommy was perhaps the most loved Celtic player of all time – it would have been great if in the various awards over the years if that was included as a category, because Tommy would have won out of the park.
Purple TV have announced that they are making a documentary on Tommy’s life and this will be shown later in the year. Given how fantastic their film on Jimmy Johnstone was, this will be very special indeed.
A Special Mass will be celebrated in St Mary’s Church in the Calton, Glasgow, this evening, 15 May, at 7pm, on the 10th anniversary of Tommy Burns’ death.
All supporters are invited to attend what is sure to be a very special occasion, remembering a man who, during his life, made an extraordinary contribution to Celtic Football Club and was a hero to every supporter.
And the three tenets of his life – family, faith and football – will be remembered during the service. The Mass in St Mary’s Church, Abercromby Street, Glasgow, on Tuesday, 15 May, begins at 7pm.
Ten years on, we reflect on the man, the Celt and the legacy of one of the club’s most loved and cherished figures. pic.twitter.com/ifT88YCWCk

I’ll say today is a day I’ll be thinking of Tommy Burns as it’s somehow been 10 years. But the truth is I think of him everyday. I’ll not be sad at the time we’ve lost but rather be greatful for the time we had with one of the best. #TB ☘

10 years ago today Scottish football tragically lost one of its favourite sons. Tommy Burns was an exceptional man, astonishingly kindhearted and funny. I feel privileged to have known him, the fact that he occasionally called me ‘sheepie’ all added to the fun. Missed! pic.twitter.com/COqEMNpLCN
