Still in shock. 

One of my favourite team mate since the day I saw him, in my first training with Kilsyth Rangers, he make me feel welcome straight away, and telling me to sign for us Kilsyth. Always tell me to keep stick in, focus, and chances will come come come & that I will become better and better player for Kilsyth. Very graceful that I sit next to him in the changing room for many many seasons. His changing room banter, hyper, wild & crazy! Always make the lads laugh, smile, buzz mode for the game kick off, bus away trip banter, cards, laughing, always make sure everyone having good time with no matter what. 

He always got time for everyone in the football, absolutely legend  

No1 Goalkeeper and a friend 

Thank your your advice, always make sure I am good and beilive in me all over the years, you always told me not to quit too early and got many years left in me, 

Kilsyth Rangers & I will never forget you

Absolutely terrible news today. One the most well known players in junior football and this news will affect a lot of people. Was with him at Kilsyth for a good few years, working with him at training and always liked to wind everyone up. Usual shout ''a fiver if you score past me'' and if first shot did..he replied he wasn't ready. Great servant to Kilsyth and deserved his testimonial last year. It was an honour to be asked by him to play in it. Thoughts are with his family. Rest in peace Dukesy

I didn’t know him through fitba, only through a mutual friend and only met him a small number of times.

But an absolute gent who left a lasting impression on me, and I’m sure I’m one of many in that category. Such sad news. asked there have said, thoughts are with his family, friends and teammates

I played primary school and boys club football with Michael but hadn't seen him for a few years. Totally shocked by the news last week

First ever trophy of the Edinburgh consolation cup in 1992 for North Merchy! Michael 3rd from the right in the back row.

Rest in peace big man71b84f8e754c450124598bc3fb6ab440.jpg
