THOUSANDS of football fans paid tribute to Celtic hero Tommy Burns at grounds across Scotland this weekend.

As the season draws to a close, a minute’s applause was heard before kick-off as supporters remembered the 51-year-old who lost his battle with cancer on Thursday.

And, as the massive sea of shirts and flowers at Parkhead grows, there was also a message from fans of Kilmarnock FC who are remembering TB’s on and off-pitch achievements.

A shrine of strips, scarves and photos was placed at Rugby Park where a generation of Killie fans credit the Celtic legend as one of their best-ever players.

The tributes at the Ayrshire stadium thanked The Hoops coach for his four and a half years there between November 1989 and June 1994 both as player and manager – where he secured a top-flight promotion for Kilmarnock and a Scottish Cup semi-final.
