Tributes have been paid to former Dundee FC player and youth coach John McGlashan.

The Dark Blues described the former midfielder as “one of our own” after the Dundonian died aged 50.

A Dundee FC fan from birth, he also played for Montrose, Arbroath, Millwall, Rotherham United, Fulham, Peterborough United and Ross County.

McGlashan managed Arbroath FC from 2005 until 2009.

The Lichties said they were “shocked, stunned and saddened” to hear of the death of the footballer, describing him as “a true gent and a real friend”.

Dundee FC paid tribute to the local, saying: “Everyone at Dundee Football Club was saddened to learn of the death of former Dundee midfielder and youth coach John McGlashan who passed away aged just 50.

“John McGlashan was ‘one of our own’ as a Dundee boy who lived the dream of pulling on the dark blue and playing his part in a title winning campaign

“The thoughts of everyone at Dens Park are with his family and friends at this sad time.”

Born in Dundee in 1967, his professional football career began in Montrose after he joined the club from Dundee Violet.

Dundee FC said he was known for his “powerful running” which he utilised in the midfield role, and his ability to find the back of the net.

After joining Millwall in 1990, he was a teammate of future Spurs, Manchester United and England striker Teddy Sheringham.

He returned to his home city after signing for Dundee FC in 1997, making his debut off the bench in a 3-0 away win at Partick Thistle.

McGlashan’s first Dundee goal was in a 3-1 win at Stirling Albion. A week later he scored the equaliser against Ross County in the Scottish Cup.

After joining Ross County in 1998, he went on to score nine times in 49 appearances before leaving for Arbroath in August 2000.
