Middlesbrough have played a touching tribute to club hero Ugo Ehiogu.
The Boro were rocked by the shock death of their former defender at the age of 44 last week.
And tonight Boro led the tributes to the big defender with a minute’s applause ahead of their Premier League clash with Sunderland.
A minute's applause is observed at the Riverside for former #Boro hero Ugo Ehiogu.

Ehiogu is of course regarded as somewhat of a cult hero north of the border after his short spell at Rangers.
He proved to be an unlikely scorer as Walter Smith’s Gers side pulled off a shock 1-0 win at Celtic Park in 2007 thanks to Ehiogu’s stunning overhead-kick.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was among those to send his condolences to Ehiogu’s family before their FA Cup semi-final win over Spurs on Saturday.
