Many people depend on the hot meals and companionship that Riverside provides and I am delighted that Celtic FC selected the centre to receive this money.“The resilience of the local people in Newton Stewart and the way in which they have supported each other through the recent flooding crisis, has been humbling to watch. The Day Centre looks after the most vulnerable members of the community and it is essential that it gets back on its feet as soon as possible.”Riverside Day Centre is a registered charity and depends entirely on charitable donations that it receives throughout the year.The donation was presented to Helen Alexander and Susan McCalum ahead of the Scottish Cup game played at Stranraer’s Stair park on Sunday.

Scott Brown in action for Celtic against PSG 1 Scott Brown has vowed Celtic will bounce back from their Champions Lesgue mauling by Paris Saint-Germain.An Edinson Cavani double and goals from Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and a Mikael Lustig own goal sunk the Scottish champions as they were humbled on their home patch.But Brown believes Celtic will give a much better account of themselves against Belgian side Anderlecht in their next European match, and at home Ross County in the Ladbrokes Premiership on Saturday.Speaking to BT, he said: “We will pick ourselves up, not a problem. This team will bounce back.“We’ve got a huge game coming up at the weekend now and we need to go and win that.”Brown admitted, however, Celtic were not up to the standard their fans are used to seeing at Parkhead.He added: “I think the first half just wasn’t us. In the first half we were very disappointing, but in the second half we were very positive.“We tried to put them on the back foot and put them under pressure but because we were pressing so high up the park we left ourselves a little bit open.“They’re a great team and they’ve played really well but we’ve got five games to go now [in the Champions League].”Celtic 0-5 PSG: Battered Bhoys rated and slated
