This talented midfield player developed with his local club Montana before signing for CSKA Sofia.

Already a regular for the Bulgarian national side, he joined Celtic in August 1999.

He was a member of the team that won the Scottish League Cup in 1999-2000 and a regular in 2000-01, but missed out on the Parkhead club's treble triumph after suffering a broken leg playing against St Johnstone in March.

However, Stilian was back in action by the start of the 2001-02 campaign.

He joined Aston Villa in August 2006 with a four-year contract that was extended to June 2013 in May 2009.

'Stan' announced his retirement in May 2013 as he continued his fight to recover from acute leukaemia.
