Thoughts are with John and the rest of the family on the loss of his dear sister.

 

That's tragic.

 

Did the wee man not post on here a few years ago using his sister's account?

He did.

 

I can’t remember her name. Maybe Shirley or Kimberly. 
 

I think it was to give his side of the story after a no show at a charity event. 
 

I think there was a mix up or something & a few folk felt let down so he came on and set the record straight.

 

Must have been at least 10 years ago.

Sorry to hear this. Has been a sobering year. Spending so much time apart from family, makes you realise how precious the time we have is. Condolences with the family.

John Robertson is a Hearts legend.  But that's not as important as being a good and honourable person.  Robbo is both of these things but especially the latter.  My thoughts are with all of the Robertsons but especially John at this terrible time in their loves.

I’m sure his sisters names are Marilyn, Heather, Moira and Jan.

To have been a teenager in the 80’s and 90’s watching Hearts in a great period in our history and having Robbo as our idol was a great privilege. How I miss those days. Have met him several times since and he is a gem of a guy whose friends and family clearly mean the world to him. Best wishes and sincere condolences to him and his family.

Sending best wishes to Robbo and family.

 

As others have said, even outside of football he is a lovely guy, & I hope he knows how much he means to us.

Then the account he posted from must not have been his sister.

His account was Sally followed by the number of goals he scored against the Vermin.

 

Keep your chin up, John.

All the very best to the wee man. Grief us a huge debilitating emotion and it takes time to come to terms with it.  Take all the time you need John.

I remember Robbo saying that while he was doing the commercial job for us he was staying in his sister's spare room through the week as his wife has a business in Inverness and that was where the family home was. 

 

 

Anyway thoughts and best wishes to him and the rest of the Robertson family.

Not that it matters but does anyone know who it was who passed away?

One if John's elder sisters.

All the best to Robbo and his family. 

 

The love and support of others is some small help when going through bereavement and there is a lot of love out there for JR ❤️

This article is behind a paywall but you get a few free reads so might work for anyone who's not gorged on the Scotsman recently.

 

It's about how Inverness chairman and Robbo got Neil McCann on board.

 

What strikes me is how humanely Scott Gardiner comes across. He's got my respect, for sure.

 

Robbo's clearly valued, and that's good to know. 

 

Heart warming.

I agree, I asked for them to removed and I wholeheartedly apologise for rising to certain things.
