Tributes have been paid following the death of well-known Aberdeen supporter Norman Goldie.
Renowned for his colourful clothing which included red and white socks, Goldie, who was in his 80s, was awarded the Distinction of Notable Service to Aberdeen FC in 2012 by the Dons Supporters Together.
A club spokesman said: “Everyone at Pittodrie was saddened to hear the news.”

Every time I saw Norman Goldie either at Pittodrie or walking down Union Street midweek he always was wearing some Aberdeen gear. A true Don

We all joke about being a 'Top Red', because we all know who the 'Top Red' was…

Really sad news about Norman Goldie. Would be a nice tribute for the team to wear one red and one white sock in either of last 2 home games.
