Fashion meets sport meets Burns…

Date: 09/08/1987

Programme: Celtic vs Liverpool (Tommy Burns Testimonial)

When Tommy Burns passed away, it was a terrible day for Scottish football. So we were sitting around an Ayrshire cafe on holiday when the news came through, and someone on TV (maybe Jackie Bird) said “you won’t find anyone in Scotland with a bad word to say about Tommy Burns. At which point my Dad decided to pipe up in public “Oh I do! He was rude to me on a school visit!”…I don’t think we ever got our black pudding…

Anyway, with much respect, I still do present Tommys 1987 advert for Wyrgges M.A.N from the back of his testimonial programme for your delectation, which cast Tommy in the role of model, prototype New Kids On The Block member, all while standing on the kind of floor to wall wallpaper motif you just don’t see anymore. Truly, of it’s time…
