TRIBUTES have poured in for “greatest ever” former Clydebank football manager Bill Munro following news of his sad passing.

The Holm Park club took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to pass on their condolences to Munro’s family following his death.

They said: “It’s with sadness we’ve learned former Clydebank manager Bill Munro has passed away.

“Taking charge in 1975, Bill oversaw the club’s rise to the Premier League, securing back-to-back promotions in the process.

“Our thoughts are with Bill’s family and friends at this sad time.”

Munro, born in 1934 in Glasgow, played for Kilmarnock, Barrow and East Stirlingshire before being appointed Clydebank manager by the Steedman family.

He took the Bankies to the promised land of the top division in Scotland in 1977, managing the club for six seasons before leaving in 1981.

He later managed Airdrie and also worked in women’s football.

One person wrote: “Knew the man very well.

“He was my next-door neighbour many years ago, and a perfect gentleman. RIP Bill.”

Another told the Clydebank Post he was widely considered by many to be Clydebank’s “greatest manager ever.”

Munro's death is the second of a former Bankie in a matter of days.

Former Striker Frank McDougall passed away on Monday with heart complications.
