It is a figure of Scottish football who dies on Saturday. Former goalkeeper Andy Goram has died aged 58, a month after announcing he was suffering from terminal oesophageal cancer.
He spent most of his career at Glasgow Rangers where he won six Scottish league titles in a row out of the club’s nine in 1989 and 1997. He had been inducted into the club and Federation Hall of Fame Scottish.
He had 43 caps for the national team and was one of Scotland’s 22 at the 1986 and 1990 World Cups. He also appeared in the final stages of Euros 1992 and 1996.
Alex Ferguson had called on his services in 2001, at Manchester United, on loan, to replace Fabien Barthez, then injured. Andy Goram had played two games for the Red Devils.
