These are the kind of stories I hate in sport. A young kid same age as one of my son’s went to watch Scotland Vs Republic or Ireland. https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/11/14/scotland-put-ireland-to-the-sword-at-celtic-park-goal-video/ He left home and never came back. My heart goes out to the family of Nathan, so young. He was leaving the ground and fell at the top tier of Celtic park where Glasgow Celtic play. He was in good spirits as Scotland won 1-0, he fell and the rest is awful.
A SCOTLAND fan died last night after falling from stairs in the top tier of Celtic Park. It’s understood Nathan McSeveney plunged three floors down a concrete stairwell at Exit 33 about 9.45pm. The horror unfolded just after the final whistle in the Euro 2016 qualifier between Scotland and Ireland, which Scotland won 1-0. The 22-year-old, from Cumnock, was rushed to Glasgow Royal Infirmary but died later.
SFA Chief Executive Stewart Regan paid tribute this morning. He tweeted: “One of our young fans died last night after falling through a stairwell coming out of Celtic Park. I’m so sorry for his family. Tragic news.”
Tributes flooded social media this morning as news of the tragedy spread.
There were 60,000 people packed into Parkhead for last night’s match. Police said there are no suspicious circumstances and a report will be prepared for the procurator fiscal. Inquiries were continuing today and the victim’s family have been informed. The Health and Safety Executive have also been made aware.
A statement posted on the Celtic club website this morning said: “Everyone at Celtic Football Club is deeply saddened to learn of the death of a young supporter following last night’s match between Scotland and the Republic of Ireland.
“This was a terrible, tragic incident and our sincere thoughts and prayers are with the young man’s family at this time.” Parkhead is due to host Scotland’s friendly against England on Tuesday night.
