Rangers Fans Tweet Support for Ex-Player Ugo Ehiogu After Training Session Collapse

Rangers Fans Tweet Support for Ex-Player Ugo Ehiogu After Training Session Collapse

Ex-Rangers defender Ugio Ehiogu was rushed to hospital this afternoon after he collapsed at Tottenham’s training centre.

The 44-year-old is currently coaching Spurs’ U23s, having retired in 2009 after successful spells with Aston Villa, Middlesbrough and Rangers.

However, Tottenham have confirmed that the ex-England international received medical treatment during a training session today, before being transferred to hospital by ambulance.

It’s unclear exactly what caused Ehiogu to collapse, although there are reports that the ex-player – who was signed by Walter Smith during his time in charge – has suffered a cardiac arrest.

The defender is of course fondly remembered for scoring a spectacular bicycle kick for Rangers against Celtic during a surprise 1-0 victory in 2007.

And despite having made just 9 appearances during his six month stint at Ibrox, the club’s supporters have been quick to send their messages of support for Ehiogu via Twitter.

 

 

Ehiogu has been part of the coaching staff at White Hart Lane since 2014.

We of course wish him all the best and hope for a speedy recovery.
