Former Aberdeen, Rangers and Dunfermline star Neale Cooper has died.
The 54 -year-old, one of the Dons’ Gothenburg Greats side that won the European Cup Winners Cup in 1983 with Sir Alex Ferguson, was found in the stairwell of a block of flats in the Bucksburn area of Aberdeen early on Sunday morning.
He was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
Aberdeen Football Club confirmed his death on Monday.
Police said they were not treating it as suspicious, but have appealed for information.
Officers want to speak to a taxi driver who picked up Mr Cooper, another man and two women at a taxi rank on Union Street, Aberdeen shortly after midnight on Saturday and dropped them at Ferguson Court in Bucksburn.
Cooper also played with Aston Villa, Rangers, Reading, Dunfermline Athletic and Ross County and managed Ross County, Peterhead, Hartlepool United and Gillingham.
The official Twitter feed for Dunfermline FC said: “Everyone at DAFC is extremely saddened to hear of the passing of former player Neale Cooper.
“Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.”
