THE great and good of Scottish football gathered for the funeral of Tommy Burns this week.

It was a tear-drenched occasion befitting a true national hero.

But we can reveal the moving event watched by thousands of fans was sullied by a despicable lowlife — who cashed in by selling FREE invites meant for friends and family to CRIMINALS.

Rat-faced dirtbag John Duffy shamelessly flogged a number of the private passes for an average of £125 each.

And last night former Celtic star Davie Provan blasted: “It’s absolutely shocking. On a day like Tommy’s funeral, when the whole of Scottish football came together, it beggars belief that someone would stoop so low as to cash in on his memory.”

Mourners including football greats like Ally McCoist and Gordon Strachan were unaware that — because of heartless Duffy — interlopers mingled with them at St Mary’s Church, in Calton, Glasgow, on Tuesday.

Ghoulish thieves target jerseys at Tommy Burns' shrine

some sick Bast*rds out there.

HEARTLESS thieves have tried to steal football shirts from the shrine to Tommy Burns outside Celtic Park.

The low-life pair struck just hours after the Celtic legend was laid to rest.

Horrified staff confronted the men after spotting them stealing strips laid in tribute to Tommy from football fans all over Scotland.

The thieves dropped the tops - which have been placed back at the shrine - and fled in a green Skoda car.

Police are examining CCTV footage of the incident on Tuesday night.

Since Tommy died thousands of tributes have been left at the car park outside the ground, including signed strips from Old Firm players.

One onlooker said: "The two men were acting suspiciously.

They seemed to be checking sizes and targeting the strips which the Celtic players had signed.

"We couldn't believe that such a thing would happen so soon after the funeral, everyone was disgusted."

Strathclyde Police said: "They were gone by the time we arrived but staff had managed to recover the stolen items. Our inquiries are continuing."

Meanwhile Celtic have revealed that the strips will be donated to charities working with underprivileged kids in Africa, South America and Eastern Europe. The club did the same thing with strips left in tribute after Jimmy Johnstone died two years ago.

A Celtic spokesman said: "The tribute made to Tommy from fans of all clubs was simply phenomenal.

"He will forever be remembered by us all as a man of true compassion and it is fitting that these items will go to help others across the world who are less fortunate."

What would that be then? Just out of curiosity.

A good kicking would be a decent start. The money he made to Cancer Research. Seems unfair for a lowlife to profit from such a nice man's death. Just my tuppence worth.

What's your thoughts then torque?
