I am so sorry for your loss, Susan. Kevin was a fine man, a free-thinking journalist and beautiful writer. The two of us shared a house together at the 2010 World Cup and I treasure the memories of our long conversations, mainly about Celtic. My sincerest condolences.

Joan McAlpine wrote 
I worked with Kevin in the NI building when we were at The Times & Sunday Times. He was a lovely friendly colleague as well as being a great journalist. So sorry for your loss.

Mick Dennis wrote 
Susan, everyone who shared press boxes with him will cherish such fond memories of a gentle soul who made us smile and laugh — while cursing that he could write so darn well. It lifted spirits to see him in a crowded press room. I am so sorry that he was unwell and has now gone.

Richard Buxton wrote 
Really saddened to hear this. I was lucky enough to have covered games sat alongside Kevin in the press box and he was always friendly & helpful to a young journalist starting out on the front line. Spoke volumes of him as much as his impressive body of work. RIP

Kevin was a lovely guy who always had time for a chat when I worked with him at the Guardian. He will also be remembered for all his work for @StokeyLitFest in #StokeNewington where I last saw him. Fond memories; a real loss. My condolences.

Susan I’m heartbroken to read this. In my year as a Guardian trainee (06-07) Kevin was extraordinarily welcoming, kind & generous with his time + advice. He became a cherished mentor & friend for that year + beyond. Such a terrible loss – my thoughts & prayers are with you. David.

Susan, I am so sorry to hear this. Kevin was a truly brilliant sports writer and one of the loveliest people I have ever had the pleasure to work with.

Oh Susan, this is awful news. I’m so, sorry. Kevin was a kind, generous and endlessly fascinating man. He was also great fun and I fondly remember years ago back in Dennistoun, talking football, politics and wherever the conversation meandered. He’ll be sorely missed. Take care.

Very sorry for your loss. Kevin was ever such a nice man. Remember our first long chat at a random game at Bradford what must be 20 years ago. We didn’t stop talking all game. That’s how I’ll remember him: such good company, such a nice man. Sending you every good wish.

So so sorry to hear this. A wonderfully intelligent writer and an engaging and kind person. I had huge respect for him. Very supportive and encouraging in my early years in football with the BBC.

Derek Rae wrote 
Lovely words, Al. Kevin certainly was someone we all greatly enjoyed spending time with and learning from. Ahead of his time in many ways.
