Gribben & Sneddon Funeral Directors arranged for the funeral procession to pass Celtic Park on the day of the team's nine-in-a-row victory on Monday, May 18.

He is survived by his fiancée Connie, who posted a message on social media urging people to follow lockdown rules. 

She wrote: "My man is in hospital very ill with Covid-19. 

"We have been self-isolating since March 22, since Jim first had his symptoms. 

"This is not a joke."
