Celtic fans have paid tribute to legendary Bobby Lennox as they unveiled a statue in the Lisbon Lion’s honour.
Lennox was an influential player in Jock Stein’s heroic European Cup-winning side in 1967 as the Hoops wrote their name in the history books with a 2-1 win over Inter Milan.
The left-winger also made his own history as he netted 21 goals in a 13-game scoring streak in 1968.
Now, ‘Saltcoat’s famous son’ will forever be remembered in the Ayrshire seaside town after a statue was erected in Countess Street in front of a large crowd.
The artwork came around following a Go Fund Me effort from the Statue for Bobby Twitter account.
And they finally unveiled the stunning statue this afternoon.
