A CELTIC defender has joined tributes to tragic Aidan Pilkington who was killed in a hit and run in the early hours of Saturday morning. 

Stephen Welsh went down to Crow Road in the city's West End today to lay scarves and football strips in tribute to the 18-year-old.

The defender presented a Celtic jersey signed by members of the first team.

A friend of Aidan's, who was known as "Pilky" tweeted: "Hats off to Stephen Welsh. What a role model this guy is to all people taking the time out his day to come down and lay scarves and T-shirt’s.

"I know how much Pilky would have loved this, a lovely gesture to make and one that won’t be forgotten. Only One Aidan Pilkington RIP."
