He may of been a good footie player for all of 4yrs, thrown a decent liver away and, well could go on but is this not a little OTT?
StoryGeorge Best was born in east Belfast
Belfast City Airport is to be renamed in honour of George Best, it has been announced.
A ceremony at the east Belfast airport is planned for 22 May, with the new signage being unveiled on what would have been his 60th birthday.
The decision followed meetings with his father, Dickie, and close relatives.
The Manchester United and Northern Ireland legend died last November after suffering organ failure.
Airport chief executive Brian Ambrose said: "We believe that renaming the airport after George is a fitting and permanent tribute to his footballing brilliance."
George's sister Barbara McNarry said the family was "absolutely delighted" by the gesture.

"The family has been consulted at every turn in the naming of the airport and have been involved in all the meetings with Brian Ambrose," she said.
"We are so delighted they have pulled out all the stops in getting this done in time for George's 60th birthday."
It is estimated that 2.2 million passengers use the airport each year.
