Video: ICYMI, ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ at Stiliyan Petrov’s charity game yesterday was very special


Sorry, think we have something in our eye…

While Gabby Agbonlahor levelling a boyband member was the most popular video to emerge from Celtic Park yesterday, this video is much more impactful.

Petrov, who is currently in remission from acute leukaemia, did a lap of honour for the fans before being joined on the pitch by his wife and kids.
