Celtic have confirmed the funeral arrangements for Strathaven-born Bertie Auld.

The Lisbon Lion was diagnosed with dementia in June and sadly passed away on November 14th, aged 83.

Clubs across the SPFL held a minute's applause for the legendary figure over the weekend and Celtic fans displayed outstanding tributes during the Premier Sports Cup semi-final against St Johnstone on Saturday.

The Parkhead side also wore number 10 on their shorts to pay tribute to the iconic midfielder.

Supporters and well-wishers will be able to go to the Celtic Way tomorrow afternoon to pay their respects as Auld makes his final trip to Parkhead. The funeral at St Mary’s, Calton, will be invitation only.

There will be a private cremation for the family.

The service will also be broadcast at Parkhead.

His cortege will pass by the stadium at around 1:30pm and further tributes are planned for Celtic's home game against Aberdeen this weekend.

A Celtic statement reads: "The club with current captain Callum McGregor and former captain Scott Brown, will also pay tribute to Bertie pre-match at the Aberdeen game on Sunday, November 28, on what is set to be a special day for the Celtic family, as we come together once more to honour and remember the legendary Bertie Auld.

"All supporters attending the game on Sunday are encouraged to arrive early and be in your seats for 2:50pm ahead of kick-off.

"Hail! Hail! Bertie. You’ll Never Walk Alone."
