Bedford-born Grennan posted a picture on social media of him hugging little Amber saying: "My little superstar Amber I wish I wasn’t writing this, your passing the night before your 9th birthday has crushed me.

"I know you will be watching & singing at every gig I do and I’ll carry your spirit & smile with me forever. Love to the family x

It comes as Norwich City fans paid their own tribute to Amber, who was a big Canaries fan, at their Championship clash away at Coventry on Saturday by applauding in the eighth minute.
