CELTIC legend Tommy Gemmell's death at the age of 73 was announced on Thursday morning. 

The Lisbon Lion was described as 'a true Celtic legend' in a club statement after he helped the Bhoys become the first British club to be crowned European champions in 1967.

Gemmell, a left-back, scored the equaliser for his side on that famous night before hitting the net again in the European Cup final against Feyenoord three years later.

Although the Parkhead side fell to defeat in extra time on that occasion, Gemmell's goal saw him join an elite list of players who have scored in more than one European Cup final. 

He remains to this day one of only two British footballers to have achieved that accolade, along with Liverpool's Phil Neal.
