Celtic announce Burns memorial

Celtic have announced that a bronze plaque in honour of the late Tommy Burns will be unveiled at the main entrance to the club's stadium on Saturday. The plaque commemorates all three aspects of Burns' Parkhead career: that of player, manager and coach.

It will be unveiled at 1pm, two hours before the Hoops' Clydesdale Bank Premier League fixture against Kilmarnock, who Burns also played for and managed.

Burns died aged 51 in May 2008 following a long battle with cancer.
