Former Northern Ireland captain Martin O'Neill pays tribute to Billy Bingham MBE

Former Northern Ireland captain Martin O’Neill paid tribute to the late Billy Bingham MBE at a special service of thanksgiving in Belfast today.

Bingham, who passed away at the age of 90 last year, holds a special and unique place in Northern Ireland footballing history, having played for and managed his country in World Cup final tournaments.

O’Neill was Bingham’s skipper at the 1982 World Cup and in an address to the congregation at St Anne’s Cathedral, he spoke fondly of his old boss, describing him as one of the game’s managerial greats.
