MILLIONAIRE Hibs fan Jane Park has urged footie fans at tonight’s Edinburgh derby with Hearts to help remember her granddad who passed away on Saturday.

The 21-year-old posted a message on facebook at the weekend revealing her family’s heartache.

But in the build up to tonight’s match at Easter Road, she asked supporters to join her in a minute’s applause in the 74th minute in his memory.

And that included Hearts fans - as her granddad was a dyed in the wool Jambo.

She said: “This is very last minute. I saw there is a seventh minute applause for a young Hearts fan who sadly has passed.

“Saturday there my granddad - a Hearts fan - sadly passed and I was wondering if fans on both sides would clap on the 74th minute in honour of his memory.

“It would mean a great deal to the family.”

The grief stricken lotto winner’s plea was inspired by a similar appeal from a distraught Dalkeith dad.

Cameron Wilson and partner Claire’s son Harry was born 13 weeks early on September 7 but died just five days later.

They took to facebook to make the emotional appeal for tonight’s applause on the 7th minute of the game, adding: “It will mean a lot to our family.”
