The Unveiling Of The Champions Flag

XXX XXXSenior Writer IJuly 31, 2008

Celtic has announced that Rosemary Burns, the late Tommy Burns’ wife, will be hoisting the 2007/2008 SPL Champions Flag over Celtic Park on August 10 during the prematch festivities before opening day.

This seems like a very fitting tribute to Tommy, especially in a season that was marked by his passing and dedicated to his memory. Celtic’s chairman had this to say, “It’s in memory of the fact that she was part of the Celtic family and stood together with Tommy in everything that he gave to this club. It’s a small way of recognizing that.”

There is also talk that this might set a precedent of someone else besides the Chairman of the Club hoisting the Champions Flag on the next season’s opening day.
