Default Gordon McQueen has died

Former Scotland, Manchester United and Leeds United defender Gordon McQueen has died at the age of 70 after suffering from dementia.

After starting his career with St Mirren, McQueen was sold to Leeds and would go on to help win the English league title in 1974, the FA Cup with Manchester Utd in 1983.

He played 30 times for Scotland and was chosen for the 1978 World Cup but missed out because of injury. He later became a pundit before being treated for cancer of the larynx in 2011.

McQueen was diagnosed with dementia in 2021, with his family saying at the time that he wanted "footballers of today's generation to know there may be risks with persistent heading of the ball".

He was a real character, when Scotland were actually a decent team
