Video: Charlie Nicholas Breaks Down in Tears on Sky Remembering Billy McNeill

Former Celtic striker Charlie Nicholas broke down in tears whilst remembering Billy McNeill during an segment on Sky Sports News today.

As we’ve told you throughout today, McNeill sadly passed away late last night at the age of 79 following a battle with dementia, and tributes from all over the footballing world have been pouring in for the man regarded as the Hoops’ greatest-ever captain.

Nicholas has often been a figure of derision amongst the Celtic support for his outspoken comments on the club in the media, but his memories of ‘Cesar’ on television this afternoon could bring a tear to a glass eye:

What do you think of his comments, and what are you favourite memories of Billy?
