Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths has paid a touching tribute to a 13-year-old school pupil who passed on Friday.
Kieran McDade (13) suffered cardiac arrest last week while training with Dunbeth Football Club.
Despite the best efforts to save his life, the Celtic fan would fall into a coma before sadly passing away.
Game day. We want to continue our good form in the league. Also looking forward to meeting the family of Kieran mcdade before the game 🍀🍀— leigh griffiths (@Leighgriff09) August 27, 2016
During Saturday's Scottish Premiership victory Aberdeen, Celtic forward Griffiths paid tribute after scoring the opening goal on 13 minutes.
Immediately sprinting to the far side of the Celtic Park pitch, he collected a T-shirt with the words "Kieran, 13" printed on it and held it aloft to the crowd as a gesture to McDade and his family.
