The family of a teenage boy who died after drowning at a country park have asked for supporters at this weekend’s Rangers v Celtic match to pay tribute.
Jordan Goodwin, 18, died after getting into difficulty in water at Mugdock Country Park on Sunday, March 20.
Emergency services were made aware of concern for a person in water at the park shortly after 6pm, and his body was recovered with the assistance of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.
His family have asked for an 18th minute applause to be held at Ibrox on Sunday, in a tribute towards Jordan, who was a Rangers fan.
Tamas Millan, Jordan’s cousin, shared the request on Facebook on behalf of the family.
It read: “As most of you know my wee cousin Jordan died at the age of 18 last Saturday when he tragically drowned at Mugdock Country Park.
“As most of his family and friends know he was a Rangers fan.
“His family are asking if on the 18th minute at Ibrox on Sunday against Celtic if all support can give him a minute’s applause in his honour, it would make all of his family and friends happy if we can do it.”
A JustGiving page set up to help Jordan’s family cover funeral costs has raised nearly £4000, and you can donate to the page here.
