Watch: Soccer Republic's Moving Tribute To The Late Ryan McBride

Irish football is struggling to come to terms with the shocking death of Derry City captain Ryan McBride, who passed away last night at the age of just 27.

Tributes have flown forth for a great man, with his former teammate James McClean and his ex-manager Stephen Kenny among those to pay tribute to McBride.

RTE have followed suit, and have produced a truly wonderful video in honour of Derry's late captain. They filmed testimony from a host of Irish footballing figures: Fran Gavin, Martin O'Neill, John Caulfield, Stephen Bradley, Keith Long, Pete Mahon, Martin Russell, Dave Robertson, Liam Buckley, Harry Kenny, Shane Keegan, and Stephen McGuinness.

It's a fabulous piece of work, and you can watch it below.
