The Green Brigade has announced plans for a poignant tribute to one of the club’s most beloved figures, Tommy Burns, pre-match against Kilmarnock.

This special tribute will coincide with the anniversary of Burns’ passing. Tommy died of melanoma aged 51 on May 15, 2008.

Tommy Burns is remembered not only for his time as a player and manager at Celtic but also for his profound impact on the club’s culture and identity. The tribute will feature a tifo prepared by fans.

The Green Brigade has called on supporters to arrive early and participate in raising the material at their seats as the players walk onto the pitch, ensuring that Burns’ legacy is honoured in a visually striking and memorable way.

This tribute comes at a critical time for Celtic, as they face Kilmarnock in a match that could secure their third consecutive Scottish Premiership title and their 12th in the last 13 years.

A win for Rangers on Tuesday would mean that Celtic needs at least a draw against Kilmarnock to clinch the title. But if the side from across the city from points against Dundee, the league will be secured heading into the match.
