Tributes have been paid to Rangers goalkeeper Andy Goram following his death. The 58-year-old’s death was announced by the Ibrox club after a brief fight with cancer.

He was known as ‘The Goalie’ during a seven-year stint with the Light Blues in Govan, where he won 10 major awards.

Walter Smith acquired his services after he relocated to Scotland from Oldham Athletic, where he had previously played for Hibs.

Having left Rangers, Goram briefly returned to England before joining Motherwell in Scotland, where he was then signed on a season-long loan by Manchester United.

One of Scotland’s greatest goalkeepers, Goram won 43 caps for his country. Over the course of his illustrious career, he appeared in more than 600 matches for the club, winning numerous trophies along the way.

As the football community remembers Goram, here are some of the tributes that have been paid.
