Fans have this evening paid tribute to Gothenburg Great Neale Cooper.
The 54-year-old sadly died after he was found collapsed in a stairwell in Aberdeen in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Was only out with Tattie and Charlie a few months ago. And speaking at a dinner with him this time last year. Absolutely devastated. Funny, lovely, talented Dandy. Loved him to pieces.

Always thought the way Neale finished this, and then celebrated in front of the Rangers end, was pretty much how most of us on the terrace would have done it. pic.twitter.com/ZZuBtcqoAJ

Thankfully, we don’t hand out the term LEGEND out to often but today Aberdeen have lost one. The youngest of the Gothenburg Greats gone.I am heartbroken and my thoughts go out to his family who must be devastated at losing Neale at such a ridiculously young age.

RIP Neale Cooper?I was in school with his son Alex who is also a brilliant footballer, and two daughters they’ll be devastated. He was a lovely guy.

Sickener aboot Neale Cooper, played well before my time & never had the pleasure of meeting him but he seemed like a thoroughly good man going by those that had the pleasure.

Neale Cooper was a local lad who achieved so much with the Dons. A great player, coach and human being. Part of Scottish football history and he will be missed. RIP and Stand Free

Utterly devastating and horrendous news on Neale Cooper. I’m actually numb. Fabulous player, fantastic man. I trust the club and the city to do what’s right to mourn the passing of a legend.
RIP and Stand Free Tattie!
