TOMMY BURNS was a Celtic legend during his playing days with the club, winning numerous trophies, but wasn’t as successful when returning to Parkhead for three years as manager …

JAMES (Robroyston) – How many trophies did Tommy Burns win with Celtic as a player and manager?

As a player with Celtic, between 1975 and 1989, Tommy won six League Championships, four Scottish Cups and one League Cup.

He joined Kilmarnock after leaving Celtic and went on to manage the Ayrshire club before returning to Celtic Park as manager at the start of season 1994/95.

Tommy managed Celtic for three years, but despite gaining a reputation for playing attractive, entertaining football, his teams won only one trophy, the 1995 Scottish Cup, and he was sacked by Chairman Fergus McCann after losing a cup semi-final to Falkirk in 1997.

As a player with Kilmarnock Tommy won promotion from Division Two in 1989/90 and as player/manager he led the team to promotion from Division One to the Scottish Premier Division in season 1992/93.

COULY (Craigton) – Following up from last week’s question about Derek Johnstone and Peter Lovenkrands being the only Rangers players to score in the Scottish Cup and League Cup Finals, whilst it has been noted that several Rangers players have scored in both finals, are the aforementioned players the only two to have scored against Celtic in both finals?

Yes, that is true. Derek Johnstone scored the winner against Celtic in the 1970 League Cup Final when he was just 16 and also scored against Celtic in the 1971 Scottish Cup Final in a 1-1 draw, Celtic won the replay 2-1.

Peter Lovenkrands scored twice in a dramatic 3-2 win in the 2002 Scottish Cup Final, John Hartson had given Celtic the lead, Lovenkrands equalised, Bobo Balde put Celtic back ahead only for Barry Ferguson to equalise again for Rangers and Lovenkrands would net the winner in the 90th minute to send the cup back to Ibrox.

In the 2003 League Cup Final Lovenkrands would score Rangers second goal of the game and what would turn out to be the winning strike in the first half of the game, Claudio Caniggia opened the scoring, Lovenkrands added a second with Henrik Larsson replying for Celtic.

SANDY BRUCE (Kilmarnock) – I know Steve Clarke, the new Killie manager, had a long career with Chelsea but did he play with a senior team in Scotland before that?

Before joining Chelsea in a £400,000 transfer in 1987 Steve played around 200 games for St Mirren.

He was signed from Beith Juniors in 1982 and played mostly as a right-back for the Paisley club.

A talented and consistent player Clarke was a key part of a fairly successful “Buddies“ side which finished fifth in the top tier in Scotland in three out of five seasons.

International recognition followed his move to Chelsea and he was capped six times for Scotland between 1987 and 1994.

Whilst at Chelsea Steve won the FA Cup, League Cup and the European Cup-Winners’ Cup and made over 400 appearances for the London giants.
