Bertie Auld is dead, one of the heroes who became Champions 67 – Cause of death

So sad to hear that another Lion has passed, RIP Bertie Auld. Thoughts and prayers with all his family at this sad and very emotional time, may god give you all the strength and help to get through this.

Robert Auld (born March 23, 1938) is a former Scottish football player and manager. He is a member of the Celtics’ Lisbon Lions team, which won the 1967 European Cup final. As a player, he has played more than 200 times in the Scottish League for the Celtics, Dumbarton and Hibernian, and more than 100 times in the English Football League in Birmingham.

Early in his career, he also won three games for Scotland. He is also known as the former manager of Partick Thistle, where he spent six seasons and is still highly regarded and was appointed to the club’s Hall of Fame. He has also held management positions in Hibernian, Hamilton Academical and Dumbarton.

Alder was born in Mary Hill, Glasgow. He joined the Celtics for the first time from the local team Maryhill Harp in March 1955, where he changed from a full back to a winger. However, his headstrong character and poor discipline hindered his progress.

After a season on loan at Dumbarton, he was sold to Birmingham City for £15,000 in 1961. In 1963, he won the League Cup medal at the Midlands Club and participated in the 1960-61 Intercity Fair Cup final. Birmingham was 4-2 by A.S. Rome in the final. In 1965, Alder returned to the Celtics for £12,000, possibly on the initiative of Jock Stein, who has not yet been appointed as the Celtics head coach.

Alder is no longer considered a winger, but has established a midfield partnership with Bobby Murdoch. He became an integral part of the team that won nine league titles and the 1967 European Cup final.

Just hearing the dreadful news that Bertie Auld has passed…never met the man but any time I heard his name mentioned it always brought a smile to my face…what a character

Another lion has left us, RIP Bertie Auld, one of the heroes who became Champions 67.

After the Celtics announced that the club legend and the Lisbon Lion had been diagnosed with dementia, people paid tribute to Bertie Alder. The former Scottish player is taking care of his family at home, and they demand that their privacy be respected at this time.

The Celtics Football Club issued a brief statement on Thursday confirming the diagnosis of the 83-year-old man and paying tribute to the “real idol”. A lot of information flooded into Alder, and the club called him “one of our greatest sons.” Former Celtic forward Moussa Dembele expressed his best wishes on Twitter. The Atletico Madrid player said: “Support and love a top player and @CelticFC legend and his family.”

Celtics’ favorite and dementia football activist Chris Sutton said: “It’s really disturbing. Dementia is such a cruel disease. “Bertie is a true legend. A talented player, and one of the most interesting people ever. Keep Bertie strong.” John Hartson said: “I was with Bertie last week. What a nice person.

He is full of peas, and we sing Athenry in the field at his house. “He suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and wants to visit him very much. God bless him as a true Celtic legend.” Sports writer and Sunday Mail columnist Hugh Kevins said: “There have been. There has been. And there will always be only one Bertie Old. Love until ten thirty.”
