Friends and associates of Bradley Welsh have called on fellow Hibs’ fans to pay their respects during the upcoming Ladbrokes Premiership match against Celtic with a minute’s applause.

The idea was suggested on a twitter post with hundreds of followers retweeting and liking the idea. The 48-year-old former British ABA lightweight boxing champion and Hibs supporter was involved in charity projects in Edinburgh, including helping young people stay away from crime through his Holyrood Boxing Gym.

He also appeared in Danny Dyer’s Deadliest Men and The Real Football Factories.

A large crowd is anticipated at the game where Celtic could clinch the title, depending on whether Hearts can take any points from second place Rangers at Tynecastle today.

Murals have also been painted around the Easter Road area, including one on the Crawford Bridge, known to supporters as ‘The Bridge of Doom’.

The stencilled portrait depicts the charity worker in a jumper emblazoned with his Holyrood Boxing logo with his name underneath.

He is described as being between 20 and 30-years-old between 5ft 10ins and 6ft tall with a slim build and tanned complexion. He was wearing a baseball cap and was casually dressed.
