Dundee FC-supporting pranksters have created their own memorial to commemorate the “doon derby”.
The tiny plaque was found glued to a bench at City Square.
It celebrates the scorers in Dundee’s 2-1 victory in the derby match in May 2016 that relegated neighbours Dundee United to the Championship.
The plaque read: “In glorious memory of Kostadin Gadzhalov & Craig Wighton. Beautiful Monday 2/5/2016 Never forgotten.”
The image was shared on social media and seen by Bulgarian defender Gadzhalov, who said he was “extremely happy” with the tribute.
Gadzhalov, who now plays for Botev Vratsa in his home country, posted on Facebook: “I am extremely happy to see my name here.”
I am extremely happy to see my name here! It was an unforgettable game for me! I wish the team the very best of luck! It…
However, not everyone was so happy to see the tribute.
Dundee City Council workers have removed the two-inch plaque, which appeared to have been professionally engraved.
The derby on May 2 2016 saw Dundee net a late winner through home-grown star Wighton.
United, who needed all three points to retain their Premiership status, took the lead through Edward Ofere early in the second half.
However, Gadzhalov’s first goal for the Dark Blues tied the game at 1-1.
A draw would have been enough to relegate the Tangerines but Wighton added a second in injury time to rub salt into United’s wounds.
Inevitably, Dundee fans have been gloating about the derby ever since.
Many supporters saw the match as revenge for United winning the First Division title at Dens Park in 1983.
However, supporters will have to find other ways to commemorate the victory after the plaque was scrapped.
A spokesman for Dundee City Council said: “This item has now been removed.”
