Vale of Leven FC legend and Dumbarton pub landlord Drew Busby will be remembered with a giant tifo by one of his former clubs on Saturday.

The former footballer, who died on July 1, made 178 league appearances for Heart of Midlothian, scoring 55 goals, during a career which also encompassed spells with Airdrieonians, Morton and Queen of the South as well as the Vale.

And Hearts supporters will display 'Busby 8', his name and shirt number, in the Wheatfield Stand at Tynecastle on Saturday as the Jam Tarts kick off their Premiership season at home to Ross County.

Busby was a powerful striker and midfielder for the Gorgie side and fans of the club still sing his name thanks to the impact he made during his time at the club between 1973 and 1979.

He passed away on July 1 surrounded by family following a period of illness. 

The idea for the display was a result of a campaign by Hearts fan's podcast This Is My Story, who surpassed their £2,600 target needed to finance the memorial.

A Hearts spokesperson said: “We look forward to paying a fitting tribute to one of the finest players to ever pull on the maroon jersey.”

Busby was also the landlord of the Waverley Bar in Dumbarton and was a familiar face around the area.
