Scottish fan Nathan McSeveney fell three floors down a concrete stairwell at Celtic Park on Friday night, and was rushed to hospital in Glasgow after Police and Ambulance services rushed to the scene.

The 22-year-old later died in Glasgow Royal Infirmary, despite doctors doing all they could to save his life.

“Relatives have been informed and the Health and Safety Executive have been made aware,” a spokesman for the Scotland Police said.

“There are no suspicious circumstances and a report will be prepared for the procurator fiscal.”

The Scottish FA paid tribute to the departed early on Saturday morning, taking to twitter to deliver his condolences.

“One of our young fans died last night after falling through a stairwell coming out of Celtic Park,” he tweeted.

“I’m so sorry for his family. Tragic news.”

60,000 people attended the match which saw Scotland run out 1-0 winners against Ireland, but the event was tragically marred by the death of McSeveney.

Celtic Park will again play host to an international fixture when Scotland play England on Tuesday, McSeveney will surely be remembered by his fellow fans on that night.
