Stephen Welsh has visited the scene of Aidan Pilkington’s death to hand over a signed Celtic jersey and spend time with friends and family.

The 18-year-old was due to start at Dundee University next week but was killed in a hit and run incident in the early hours of Saturday morning. It has been reported that Celtic B team player Ciaran Dickson has been arrested in relation to the incident.

Welsh travelled from his Lanarkshire home to Crow Road in the west end of Glasgow to meet family and friends of Aidan.

Within the football bubble it is easy to get over dramatic about the highs and lows but incidents like the weekend put everything into perspective.

The arrival of Cameron Carter-Vickers resulted in Welsh dropping out of the Celtic side in the week that he captained the Scotland u-21 side. Those things happen in the world of sport but the young Celtic defender appreciates that there are far greater issues for people to deal with.
