More than 60,000 Celtic fans turned up to salute club legend Stiliyan Petrov on an emotional day at Parkhead on Sunday.

And the Celtic fans showed their appreciation of former Bulgarian international ‘Stan’ with this stunning version of You’ll Never Walk Alone.

The Bhoys were on hand to support Petrov’s leukemia charity after he overcame his own battle with the disease. The former Aston Villa captain spent seven years at Celtic Park when John Barnes signed him as a 19-year-old for £2m in 1999.

Celtic legends Henrik Larsson, Kenny Dalglish and Martin O’Neill, Paul Lambert, Brian McClair, Shay Given and Neil Lennon joined Stan, with Dalglish and O’Neill acting as managers for the day.

The Petrov XI ran out 5-3 winners with Fulham’s Dimitar Berbatov scoring a hat-trick on a day when football showed its best side to support a much-loved player.
