The ex-Villa and Celtic midfielder was forced to give up the game earlier this year after being diagnosed with the disease in March 2012. And as part of the foundation’s launch, the Bulgarian, who is now in remission, will host a match between a Celtic team and a Stiliyan side at Celtic Park on Sunday September 8.
Admission to the ground will be £10 for adults and £5 concessions and ‘Stan’ is hoping to see the ‘house full’ signs at Parkhead on the day of the match. He said:
“I have been given a great opportunity from Celtic to start my foundation with a game here at Parkhead”.
