Well known Accies fan,Derek Findlay sadly passed away earlier tonight after losing his battle with kidney cancer.

Derek went home and away with myself for over 30 years and Social Media pages are awash with tributes to Derek.

Derek was only in his mid 40's and he used to sit with his son Ross at the games.

RIP Derek,a great friend and a great Accie.

I'm in total shock YOH!. I had the good pleasure of bumping into Derek and you on the way down to Wembley years ago for the Scotland v England game, and had a great couple of days. I didn't even know the big man was unwell. My thoughts are with his family. RIP Derek.
