Hugh never got the credit he deserved. Very versatile player who at one time , when Peter Kane was injured , was played at No9 for a wee while , and scored goals for fun. Looking back , I always wondered why they didn’t persist with him up front . As for the LC Semi , he was stitched up that night. Celtic we’re struggling before Hughie was sent off , still 0-0. Then Archie Knox scored a perfectly good goal and was ruled offside. Late in the game we tired with the 10 men and conceded 3 in about 10 mins.

3 goals in 4 mins Billy round about the hour mark.

Just catching up with this sad news, Hugh was most definitely an integral part of that championship winning team, I never realized that he and Bobby didn't get medals how bizarre is that different times but weird? in truth this is the team that I saw play more than any other they all to this day hold so many very special memories to me. Sadly another passes but in the annals of saints memorabilia they will never be forgotten as the champions and record setter they where and are. Condolences to the family God bless.
