Former Rangers midfielder Ray Wilkins has died aged 61, after suffering a cardiac arrest, as per The Guardian.
Wilkins spent two years at Rangers between 1987 and 1989, winning a league title and a Scottish League Cup medal.
He is well remembered for “the goal made in England,” in the famous 5-1 Old Firm victory, as well as crying after his final game for the club.
He was signed by Graeme Souness and Walter Smith, when Souness brought great English talent to Ibrox, offering European football following the Heysel tragedy banning English clubs from Europe.
Souness also brought players such as Terry Butcher and Chris Woods during his spell as player-manager of Rangers.
Wilkins also enjoyed his career playing for clubs such as Chelsea, Manchester United and Queens Park Rangers, who signed him from Rangers.
Wilkins was also a great servant for his country earning 84 caps during his 24 years playing as a professional.
His managerial career saw him mainly in West London, taking the hot seat at Fulham as well as former clubs Queens Park Rangers and Chelsea, where he was assistant manager and caretaker manager on numerous occasions.
Wilkins suffered a cardiac arrest last week and was admitted to St George’s Hospital in Tooting in South-West London. He sadly passed away on April 4th.
