As a member of the first Hibs team to play in Europe it would be fitting if we could achieve something special for him on Thursday night. Hopefully supporters and players can come together and make it happen. He was a supporter who happened to become a legend so I'm sure it's exactly what he would want.
I remember when I started at uni many years ago talking to a guy when it came up I was a hibby. Oh my uncle used to play for Hibs he said, oh yeah I thought Kevin McKee or Pat McCurdy or something, turns out it was Lawrie Reilly. But your an Aberdeen fan I spluttered in disbelief. RIP Lawrie, my thoughts are with you and yours.
Cattle die and kinsmen die, and one must die oneself, but one thing that never dies is the fame of a dead mans deeds.
And when I dream of bygone days, as I do now and then.
I dream about the forward line who were our greatest men.
Smith, Johnstone, Reilly, Turnbull, Ormond we wont see again.
But their memory marches on...
Gutted about this. Knew he was in the western few weeks back and was hoping he would be ok. One of my favourite pictures is Lawrie and Sir Paddy with my oldest boy in between them. Lawrie and Sir Paddy couldn't have been nicer to me and my son.
