The Green Brigade raised the cash for Alzheimer Scotland after the 76-year-old’s family revealed he is battling dementia.

The group said: “Yet again we have been left humbled by the generosity of the Celtic support. Given the constant and incredible backing we receive, we feel a responsibility that extends beyond our membership.
