Scotsman Billy McNeill, captain of Celtic Glasgow, winner of the C1 in 1967, died on Tuesday.

After Tommy Smith (Liverpool) ten days ago, another legend of British football has just disappeared. Captain of the great Celtic Glasgow, winner of the European Champion Clubs' Cup in 1967 (2-1 against Inter Milan), Billy McNeill died on Tuesday at the age of 79 years.

A nine-time champion (between 1965 and 1974) with the Glasgow Catholic Club as a player, the former central defender (29 caps, 3 goals) also won the title four times as a coach (1979, 1981, 1982 and 1988). So many titles that earned him the nickname "Caesar" by the club's supporters, who elected him captain of the club's centennial team in 2002.
