Legendary former Celtic captain Billy McNeill – the first Briton to lift the European Cup – has died aged 79.

McNeill led Celtic when they beat Inter Milan 2-1 in 1967 and captained the club to nine successive titles, seven Scottish Cups and six League Cups.

In two spells as Celtic boss, he won four titles and four cups. He managed Clyde, Aberdeen, Manchester City and Aston Villa too.

McNeill had been living with dementia since 2010.

THESE were the scenes in Glasgow on Saturday as hundreds of Celtic fans poured out onto the streets at the Gallowgate.

The planned parade to celebrate the Hoops’ treble treble victory was then cancelled amid safety fears.

 

An open top bus procession through the streets had been due to leave Clyde Street at 6.3

 

However, the parade was cancelled an hour later as so many fans swarmed the area amid fears the bus could not pass through safely.

 

Police told fans lining the streets at around 7.30pm that the event would not go ahead because crowds were not moving off the road

 

A controversial Republican march has taken place in Glasgow.

Republican group Cairde na hEireann – who call themselves Scotland’s Irish Republican Voice – headed off on a parade from Millroad Street in the Calton at around 2pm.

 

Around 30 marchers and 300 supporters took part in the parade.

The march snaked its way through the Gallowgate area and down to Clyde Street where a ceremony was held at the anti-fascist La Pasionaria monument.

Anther 60 or so other officers were deployed at Clyde Street to deal with around 150 counter demonstrators who had gathered by the riverside.

Police Scotland had vowed to crack down on any sign of disorder.

Police kept the two sides apart as the marchers arrived at Clyde Street with Republicans chanting “Ooh ah up the Ra” and Loyalists responding by chanting “paedos, paedos”.

However, the Loyalist counter protesters soon left the area while those taking part in the Republican march also dispersed and many headed back towards the east end of the city with police managing to retain order and keep the two sides apart
