Rangers Fans Lead Tributes to Ugo Ehiogu After His Tragic Death at 44

Rangers fans have been leading tributes to Ugo Ehiogu this morning after the former Ibrox defender’s death at the age of 44 was announced this morning.

The former Gers, West Brom, Aston Villa, Middlesbrough, Leeds United, Sheffield United and England centre back was coaching at Tottenham yesterday when he suffered a cardiac arrest.

He was taken to hospital last night for treatment, with the whole of the football community united in hoping he would make a full recovery.

But Spurs this morning announced in an emotional message that he had passed away:

The football community was shocked to learn the news, especially as Ehiogu was only 44 and, based on public knowledge, wasn’t suffering from any health issues.

In times like this, it’s heartening to see those involved with all clubs throughout Britain unite in grief and post a message in tribute to the former defender.

Ehiogu spent a year with Rangers towards the end of his career and their fans are among those devastated by his death:
