The funeral of Celtic legend John ‘Yogi’ Hughes has taken place in Glasgow.
Hughes, who was part of the club’s famous European Cup winning squad known as the Lisbon Lions, died earlier this month aged 79.
Current Celtic stars including captain Callum McGregor, forward Kyogo Furuhashi and manager Ange Postecoglou attended to pay their respects.
Former team mates and fellow Lisbon Lions Jim Craig, John Clark, John Fallon and Bobby Lennox were also in attendance as the European Cup took pride of place beside the altar.
During his 12-year spell at the Hoops Hughes scored 189 goals in 416 games and won six league titles, four Scottish Cups, five League Cups and the European Cup in 1967, although he missed the final in Lisbon through injury.
He also scored in the 1970 European Cup semi-final at Hampden in front of a record attendance of 136,505 at Hampden Park as Celtic reached their second final.
That crowd remains the biggest for any game in a European competition in football history.
The funeral mass, held at St Mary’s, Calton, started on Friday at 12.30pm, and following the service, the cortege made its way to Celtic Park at approximately 1:45pm where large crowds gathered to celebrate the former striker’s life and career.
A large crowd then gathered in Parkhead as the funeral cortege passed the stadium where he made his name.
The service was broadcast on Celtic TV and the club’s official YouTube channel.
The Hughes family also requested those paying their respects to wear green to celebrate his career with his boyhood heroes.
Celtic said in a statement ahead of the service: “Fans who wish to pay their respects in person are encouraged to arrive at The Celtic Way outside Celtic Park for 1.30pm in time for the cortege passing Paradise.
“John’s family have intimated that a fitting tribute would be the wearing of some green to acknowledge John’s Celtic connection and lifelong love of the club for those in attendance on Friday.”
