FAREWELL TO HIBS FAN.
Friends and family flocked to the funeral at Mortonhall Crematorium in Edinburgh yesterday to bid farewell to Walter "Wattie" Robb, many of them wearing green and white, instead of black.
Wattie, who was 74, was laid to rest in his Hibs colours.
Hibs manager John Hughes led the tributes to Wattie, saying he was the "dictionary definition of a football fan".
He said:"The first time I met him, he told me I was rubbish.
"He will be sorely missed."
Wattie's favourite player was Famous Five legend Gordon Smith, with Derek Riordan being his favourite recent player.
His greatest memory was Hibs' 7-0 derby win at Tynecastle on New Year's Day in 1973.
