THE heartbroken family of Gregor Gibbons have shared a touching message on social media. 

The 32-year-old, who was first reported missing on July 2, was recovered from the River Kelvin on July 26. 

Earlier this month those close to the Rangers fan posted on the Find Gregor social media page announcing that a fundraising page had been started to gather funds for a memorial. 

Now, just over three weeks after his body was found, the family are now hoping to get a bench put in place.
