FORMER Dundee United boss and Dunfermline star Jackie McNamara is in a “critical but stable condition” in hospital.

Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust issued a statement regarding the ex-Celtic and Scotland player after it was reported he had suffered a bleed on the brain.

It’s understood Mr McNamara, 46, was out walking when he began feeling unwell before collapsing near his home.

He was rushed to a facility in York before being transferred.

An NHS spokeswoman said: “We can confirm Jackie McNamara was admitted to Hull Royal Infirmary on Sunday night and is currently being cared for in our Intensive Care Unit.

“He remains in a critical but stable condition.

“We are supporting both Jackie and his family, who request their privacy to be respected at this time.”

Mr McNamara’s family last night thanked the public for their response after thousands of fans took to social media to send him their well wishes.

He was in charge of the Tangerines from 2013 until 2015, reaching two cup finals.

In January 2019, he returned to Scottish football as the Pars’ new consultant.

The defender made 33 appearances for Scotland and 358 for Celtic during his playing career.

The Parkhead club said: “The thoughts and prayers of everyone at Celtic FC are with Jackie and his family.”

United added: “The thoughts of everyone at Dundee United are with ex-manager Jackie McNamara and his family today.”
