A packed Celtic Park is to fall silent tonight in memory of the victims of the Creeslough tragedy.
Glasgow Celtic FC, whose founding fathers came from Donegal, confirmed there will be a ‘period of silence’ before their Champions League clash with RB Leipzig.
The famous club also confirmed all players will wear black armbands during the crunch tie which is expected to draw up to 60,000 spectators.
A period of silence will be held prior to the #CelticRBLeipzig kick-off tomorrow and the players will wear black armbands during the game, in memory of the 10 people who tragically lost their lives in Creeslough, County Donegal on Friday.

Yesterday, the Scottish giants paid tribute to the victims of last Friday’s disaster and donated £10,000 to the Creeslough Community Support Fund.
The Support Fund has been set up by the Irish Red Cross in collaboration with An Post and Applegreen to provide rapid and long-term assistance to the Creeslough community.
One of the ten victims of the explosion was Martin McGill (49) who was an avid Celtic fan.
Originally from Scotland, Martin had moved to Donegal to care for his elderly mother.
