The wife of jailed former MSP Tommy Sheridan said she is "immensely proud" to carry on his legacy on the campaign trail for the Holyrood election.
As polling day draws closer, Gail Sheridan has been campaigning with her sister-in-law Lynn Sheridan, who is standing as a candidate for the Solidarity party.
Tommy Sheridan's wife and sister campaigned outside East Kilbride Shopping Centre to encourage potential voters to sign their petition against public service cuts.
Lynn Sheridan, who is a lecturer in Social Work at Glasgow Caledonian University, is the party's top candidate for the Central Scotland regional list.
Gail Sheridan said: "If Tommy could be, he would be here today to support Lynn.
"We are both immensely proud to be carrying on his legacy and I know Lynn will make a fantastic MSP.
"I've been to see him plenty of times in jail and his spirits are definitely high.
"But people ask me all the time how he's doing, and while he's fine he is still in Barlinnie - so he's only as fine as he can be."
Lynn Sheridan, who is co-leader of Solidarity with her brother, said she too had visited Tommy in prison to talk policies and tactics.
She said: "I met with him recently and had a chat about what sort of tactics and policies we should be using.
"He wasn't giving me advice as such as I've been politically involved in the party for a long time, but it was a chance to talk things through.
"I am absolutely going to try and carry on his legacy - he campaigned for a lot of important policies during his time as an MSP and I plan to be a socialist fighter just like he was."
Tommy Sheridan formed Solidarity in 2006 after splitting from the Scottish Socialist Party.
He was jailed for three years in January after being found guilty of lying under oath during his defamation case against the News of the World.
At the launch of the party's manifesto last month, Lynn Sheridan said her brother had sent a message to voters from prison to get "fighters and campaigners" back in the Scottish Parliament.
Solidarity candidates are standing in every region of Scotland, while in Glasgow they are part of George Galloway's Coalition Against Cuts.
Lynn Sheridan said the campaign has "been going in a positive direction" so far.
She said: "My aim is to get proper financing for local government and to put a stop to the cuts to public services.
"We are sure to get one member elected in Glasgow and hopefully another in Central Scotland."
