Celtic limped past Kilmarnock on Saturday, but despite the poor performance fans are revelling in one truly special moment.
The Bhoys picked up a crucial three points at Parkhead on Saturday, but there was only one thing on everyone’s mind.
Billy McNeill, the club’s greatest ever player and captain who passed away this week at the age of 79, was honoured before the match.

And despite a fairly drab affair with few clear-cut chances, Jozo Simunovic ensured the day was remembered for all the right reasons, as he rose highest to head home the only goal in the 67th minute.
Not only does Simunovic share the number five shirt with McNeill, the goal came in the 67th minute, leading fans to believe that the magic of the 1967 Lisbon Lions lives on still.
While Neil Lennon is taking some stick for yet another result grinded out in underwhelming fashion, Simunovic’s fitting tribute to McNeill has elicited quite the response on Twitter.

Okay I’m convinced Jesus is real god bless mc Neil ?
