Stubbs, who won the cup as a player with Celtic, said: “My medal will be getting donated and I will auction it off to the highest bidder and it will go to a good cause.

“I got a letter off a lady who had lost a baby in childcare and she’s trying to raise money for machines so that will be one of them. I’ll maybe limit it to three charities and the money will be split between them.”

Stubbs had earlier disclosed how he had planned a special tribute to the father of his first-team coach John Doolan, who died of cancer a fortnight ago, his funeral taking place at the start of last week, but he said: ”You can do tributes in your own way and they become more personal. I couldn’t be happier for John. Everyone will have a tribute of some sort and John would not only have been with his dad, but another close friend who died a couple of years ago.”
