    Mr Lawler, who had cancer, died 45 minutes later.

    Ms Lawler Carson posted: “Please can everyone share I’m trying to get a few of Manchester United players to come and visit my granddad, we asked him the other day if he would like to do anything before his time comes and he said to meet the team.

    “And not sure how long we have left with him so I want to get this as a surprise, he’s a MASSIVE fan, even tried his hardest to keep his eyes open yesterday to watch the match [Man Utd v Man City derby] but sadly he missed it!

    “I know he will be so gutted that he didn’t watch it. I’m sure he will be a very happy man if I can get his last wish Thankyou to u all Xxx.”
