The game was rocked yesterday by the sudden and untimely death of Neale Cooper – an Aberdeen hero.

A real credit to the sport, I was very shocked when I read the news that he was in hospital and in a serious condition.

I was even more shook up, then, when it broke that he was no longer with us – even though I have no real connection with the Dons at all.

Certainly, it was a reminder of how precious life is and the outpouring of tributes has been testament to what a man Neale was.

Let’s look at what our club had to say, then, and the reaction from fans of not just our team…

The Verdict

What more can you say really?

Truly, it was a very sad day yesterday and I am sure many will take time to get over the sudden loss of the man affectionately known as Tattie.

I pass on my well-wishes to his family and friends.
