Very sad news.  Time to all pull together and make a success of his generous legacy.

Totally agree.  A very sad way to end the year. A man that did what any true supporter would do, given the magnitude of his wealth, yet still, unbelievably, had to bear the brunt of criticism from certain posters and so called supporters.  RIP Colin


‘there not supporters of our club , only clowns would criticise a person who went out there way to fund our club , RIP Colin

There will be a minute's  applause to commemorate the sad passing of Colin Weir at the Morton game today. Thistle players will also wear black arm bands.

Shocked to learn of this news. 

A very sad day for all who wear the red and yellow. Thoughts with his family and close friends at this time. A man who will be sorely missed. 

RIP Colin

What a tremendous legacy it would be if this could happen. 

RIP Mr Weir and thanks.

I was on holiday when this happened, just back, and didn't know about it until after the Morton game.

Regardless of how or by whom the club ends up being run, this is very sad and the timing is particularly cruel, as Colin hasn't lived to see his dream of fan ownership coming true. He was, however, able to see the turn round that has been happening on and off the field, and he was able to do something that most, if not all, of us have dreamed of. 

His generosity was remarkable and was aimed, it appears, at supporting not one but two good (if never particularly popular) causes: supporting a non-sectarian football club in this great city and the ending of Westminster rule in this great country.  A folk-singing, and Jags supporting, friend of mine used to say that once being a Partick Thistle fan in the 20th century was like being a Jacobite in the 18th and 19th!

Colin would have appreciated that, I'm sure.

Colin Traynor Weir, aged 72, died peacefully on 27th December 2019 after a brief illness. A loving father, and much loved by family and friends.

The funeral service will take place at Partick Burgh Hall, Burgh Hall Road, Glasgow at 11.15am on Tuesday 14th January 2019, to which all are invited. There will be a private cremation thereafter.

Prior to this, the cortege will stop at Firhill at 10.30am to allow Colin a final visit to his beloved Partick Thistle.

Family flowers only, please, but donations can be made in lieu to the Partick Thistle Charitable Trust.

A Scottish patriot, philanthropist and Jags man to the end.

Rest In Peace, sadly missed.

What Colin Weir did for our Club can never be underestimated, debt free , Academy started , ownership of the whole ground again.

That is Colin Weirs legacy, I hope he gets a fantastic send off.

I have supported Thistle forever because of the lack of any bias and the benefits  of inclusivity. I’m sure Mr Weir would have concurred.
