Celtic star Sieran Dixon was arrested after a teenager was killed on suspicion of hit and run. In the early hours of Saturday, the 19-year-old soccer ace was robbed by police after 18-year-old Aidan Pilkington was found seriously injured on Crow Road in Glasgow.

Police filed an appeal over the alleged incident and officials stated that an engine had been tracked yesterday. Dixon, who played for the Celtics B team, was arrested and released Sunday, pending further investigation.
The Renfrewshire Erskine midfielder made his Rangers debut last season and was awarded a three-year contract in January. But after Ibrox’s unexpected summer outing, the Scottish Under-19 cap was acquired by rival Celtics earlier this month.
Yesterday, Aidan’s broken family shared his grief and revealed how he planned to move to Dundee to attend college next week. They said, “Aidan is appreciated by his family and loved and respected by friends and the community.
“Aidan dropped out of Hydeland High School in the summer and moved to Dundee next Saturday to study at the University of Dundee.” He has created a bright future for himself and is looking forward to these opportunities and challenges.
“Her life from him was stolen in this way, very cruel. “The family would like to thank friends, especially Aidan’s friends, and the entire community for his love, support and kindness.”
When news of the tragedy spread, shocked friends also paid tribute to the popular teenager on social media. The GoFundMe page created by Aidan’s worst hit colleague at McDonald’s has raised over £ 7,000.
Highway Patrol Sgt. Scott Sutherland said: “A 19-year-old man was arrested in this incident.
“He has been released and is awaiting further investigation.
“We want to thank everyone who has contacted us about the appeal thus far, and we urge all those who have information but have not yet contacted us.”
