TRIBUTES have flooded in for independence campaigner Alison McGoff.

The 54-year-old, who was also a Celtic fan and was originally from Coatbridge, died within the stadium ahead of their match against St Mirren on Saturday.

SNP MP for Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill, Steven Bonnar, paid tribute in a post on Twitter/X with a selfie of the pair at a Celtic game.

"Rest in Peace, Alison McGoff,” he said.

"We campaigned for Independence together in 2014 and Alison was a polling agent for me in 2019. In so many respects she was a kindred spirit.

"May she rest in eternal peace.

“Though she be but little, she is fierce."

The Twitter/X account of the Airdrie For Independence group, meanwhile, said she was a “stalwart” of the independence movement.

They wrote: “We were very sorry to hear that our good friend Alison McGoff passed away at Celtic Park last Saturday. Alison was a stalwart of the independence movement and regularly attended our events in Airdrie.

“She will be sadly missed by us all,and we extend our condolences to her family.”

A friend of hers also posted on Facebook, writing: “I'm absolutely devastated by the news that my good friend Alison McGoff has passed away.

"I am truly blessed and thankful for having had her friendship and the wonderful memories of sharing mad stories of loving the Celtic, Ireland and our love of rebellion.

"The beautiful consolation is that she died in her true Paradise, the only place on earth where she was truly free of life's burdens and doing the thing she lived for, supporting the Celtic.

"Rest in peace beautiful wumin, I'll miss ye!"
