WATCH: Tributes pour in for Lisbon Lion Tommy Gemmell

Scottish football woke up this morning to the sad news that Celtic legend and 1967 European cup winner Tommy Gemmell had passed away 24 hours earlier.

Tommy was a giant of our game and was the only defender in history to have scored two European Cup Final goals until that feat was matched by Real Madrid superstar Sergio Ramos.

Tributes have been pouring in all day at the passing of a true legend.

Former team-mate Bertie Auld was first up.

Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell reminisced about watching Gemmell play as a fan.


Fantasy Football recreated that infamous moment against Germany that Tommy blamed for ending his Scotland career.
