Scotland and Rangers legend Andy Goram has died at the age of 58.
Capped 43 times for his country, former goalkeeper Goram passed away following a short battle with cancer.
Known simply as “The Goalie”, his long, distinguished playing career, came to a close at north side Elgin City in 2003/04 under David Robertson, a team-mate from his time at Rangers.
In reaction to the news, Elgin posted on social media: “The condolences & thoughts of everyone at the club are with the family and friends of former Scotland, Rangers and Elgin City goalie Andy Goram following the sad news of his death.”

He also represented his country at cricket, but it was his time at Rangers which set him apart, helping the Light Blues during their nine-in-a-row dominance under Walter Smith.
Goram, who starred for Scotland in Euro 1992 and 1996, won five titles with Rangers, three Scottish Cups and two League Cups.
He began his career at Oldham Athletic and also played for Hibs, Motherwell and notably with Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United in 2000/01 on loan.
