Ricksen

Seeing as I can’t comment on threads by Zach and Fash, it’s a nice touch by Celtic to pass on their condolences. Fernando fought as best he could, and did a lot to raise awareness of such a dreadful disease.

RIP.

It's times like this that people show their class.

Messages from Celtic, Aberdeen, Arsenal, Stan Petrov, etc are really great to read and remind us all that life is all too short,


----------------------------------------------------------------------
It would need to be a truly cold hearted person that couldn’t offer sympathy at a time like this for his family and friends.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Or some stupid wee d!ck like the guy that tried to wind up Scott Brown.

Unfortunately these people exist so we can't be too shocked when they do or say stupid schite.

It's been tough to see him over the past few years, was a bit of a pantomime villian with for Celtic fans but i'm sure 99.9% of scottish football fans will be sad to hear the news.

RIP.

Nothing wrong with pantomime villians...usually a backhanded compliment..Life can be such a bastirt at times at least the vast majority can stand in solidarity over this type of horrendous disease.Thoughts and message such as on here renews my hope for the human race... to you all.

True. And there will be some ar5ehole Celtic fans that will think they’re being funny, or just attention seeking with some of the stuff they’ll come out with. Hopefully, they’re put right.

Agreed.

Nice words from Lawwell:

"Everyone at Celtic would like to extend their most sincere and heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the family of Fernando Ricksen following today’s news that he has passed away.

"Fernando was part of Scottish football for a number of years and for him to be taken so young is a huge tragedy.

"He fought this terrible condition with such courage and we should all admire and respect the inspirational way in which he tackled the challenge which he faced.

"He showed immense bravery throughout. Our thoughts and prayers of course are with Fernando’s family and friends at such a difficult time."

A truly horrible affliction. Mercifully at peace now, after an unbelievably brave battle for so long. RIP.

Only heard a bit of the phone in tonight, and Alex Rae was on. He’s a guy I don’t have a lot of time for, and don’t really think he’s a very good pundit, but I did feel for him tonight as he was clearly very emotional when talking about Fernando Ricksen.

Sad day for the family and friends. Horrible disease.

I like so many others are blocked by Zachary. It’s easier to join the KKK than get on to a Zach thread.
