The family of Dons legend Neale Cooper has donated money to an animal rehoming centre in Aberdeen in his honour.
Aberdeen FC legend Neale Cooper, a well-known animal lover, passed away last year aged just 54.
At his funeral, the former midfielder’s family held a collection in aid of Mrs Murray’s Home for Stray Dogs and Cats in Seaton.
A golf day was also auctioned off, and although the exact amount raised is unknown, it is thought to be well over £1,400.
We can now share this with you ❤️Huge thank you to the family of the former Aberdeen Football legend Neale Cooper, who…
Mrs Murray’s has now renamed part of the centre Tattie’s Pad – a reference to the Gothenburg Great’s affectionate nickname.
The organisation said: “A huge thank you to the family of the late Aberdeen football legend Neale Cooper, who very kindly raised money for Mrs Murray’s after he sadly passed away.
“Neale was a huge dog fan and loved every one that crossed his path.
“In his honour, our doggie rehoming block has been named ‘Tattie’s Pad’ after him: in other words, a dog’s best friend, he loved them all.
“We are extremely grateful and humble to Neale’s family for their support and for supplying the words to the plaque.”
