Video: Shamrock Rovers and Celtic Fans Have 6th-Minute Applause For Bradley Lowery

Shamrock Rovers and Celtic fans combined to have a sixth-minute applause for little Bradley Lowery after his tragic death yesterday.

The six-year-old Sunderland fan earned a place in the hearts of the British football community for the way he battled against cancer.

He was a mascot for his beloved Black Cats and developed a lovely relationship with their former star striker Jermain Defoe while fighting against neuroblastoma.

But sadly Bradley died yesterday – and that’s led to tributes from around the football community.

Shamrock Rovers and Celtic played against each other in a friendly in Dublin earlier and supporters combined for a sixth-minute applause in memory of the little man:

More tributes are planned for Bradley, including Hibs and Sunderland fans stopping for a minute’s applause in the sixth minute of Lewis Stevenson’s testimonial at Easter Road tomorrow.

It’s also been confirmed that proceeds of that game will be donated to Bradley Lowery fund.
