Football legend’s grandson found dead aged 21

The grandson of Celtic legend Billy McNeill has been found dead, his family has confirmed.

Matthew McCombe vanished on March 14 while on holiday in Amsterdam, Holland to celebrate his 21st birthday.

Matthew's heartbroken mum Paula took to Facebook on Wednesday morning to confirm the tragic news that her son's body had been found.

Paula wrote: "It is with great sadness that we are announcing our son Matthew McCombe's body was found this morning.

"Matthew was much loved by all and our hearts are broken.

"We would like to thank everyone who has helped in the search for Matthew and for the love, compassion and kindness that has been extended to us since our arrival in Amsterdam.

"As a family we would kindly ask for our privacy to be respected in these sad times."

Matthew's dad Charlie made a television appeal in Holland for information on his son's whereabouts just last weekend.

On Dutch TV, Charlie said: "For some reason, we don't know why he left the hotel room at 6.15am. I had a text at 1.36am. I'd asked him earlier, 'How was it?', and he text back saying, 'Class night'."
