Brilliant !

There's not much on 'YouTube' that I would ever think of praising but, when it comes to absolute champions, I have to dip my lid !

From Oz, I've only ever seen Tommy Burns playing on video (and he looked a fantastic player) but, if so many people can show such respect for him at his funeral, then he must have been something really special to 'Weegies', too !

Tommy Burns was so highly thought of that he managed to __________ (insert you own word) that barrier between the Rangers and Celtic ideologies and, therefore, must be looked upon as a true champion among footballers !

Thanks, GG, for the opportunity to express my opinion from the Antipodes,

Regards,

I have always admired Tommy Burns as a Man and a Player. On a Trip back I bumped into him in the Square and Shook his hand and wished him luck. I`d never done that before. Jimmy he`s as genuine as he looks and we spoke for a couple of Minutes. Sad Sad !!
