BILLY McNEILL has been been named as the winner of this year’s One Club Man Award for 2019.

“Athletic Club has decided to award with the One Club Man Award 2019 to the legendary Celtic FC captain William McNeill (March 2, 1940).

The awards are run by Basque club Athletic Club Bilbao and they explain why they have selected Billy as their winner this year.



In 2015, after more than 60 years dedicated to the club between player, coach and ambassador, Celtic decided to dedicate to him a statue of recognition next to his stadium, in which Billy McNeill is appreciated lifting the European Cup with the unmistakable horizontal striped green and white jersey.” Congratulations to Billy, once a winner always a winner.

“The principle of territoriality, the same principle that Athletic Club has upheld throughout its history and of which it is today the only representative in the five major European leagues, is taken to its highest expression and personalised in a mythical figure for Celtic fans, Billy McNeill.

Our greatest ever captain…

“Billy McNeill was Celtic’s captain during their most glorious era in the 1960s and 1970s, winning nine consecutive league championships and 13 other Scottish tournaments, although that team will always be remembered for one of the greatest feats in the history of football, that European Cup in 1967, being also the first British team to conquer it.
