As I’ve posted elsewhere, Billy McNeill was class personified. He will be very sadly missed. A gentleman.

Shame.  He was a big Celticy b*****d but undoubtedly a born leader and one of Scotland's finest. 

Spoiler

 

He will of course be remembered most for his time at Pittodrie.  Signing Strachan and Steve Archibald prior to the Fergie era.

A Celtic and Scotland footballing great. Always put himself across in a very dignified manner. RIP

Very sad news.  The term legend gets thrown about too readily regarding players not fit to lace guys like McNeill's boots.  An absolute colossus.

A genuine icon of Scottish Football.

It was sad to hear what had become of him in the last decade as old age is a dreadful thing for some.

Glad for him and his family that he's finally at peace.

Sad news. Another footballing great of my childhood gone. It would seem in Billy's case that this is a blessed release from dementia.

Sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Few, if there are any, more iconic figures in the Scottish game. Horrible way for anyone to go.

A one club man, great player, great captain for both Celtic and Scotland, and a dignified and modest man to boot.

A true Scottish footballing icon.

Celtic's wee video about him is right good:
 

 

Yes that's really good.

Always seemed to conduct himself so well, a true gent as has been said. 

RIP
