The utterly terrible news we’re waking up to is that Ugo Ehiogu has died after suffering a heart attack at Tottenham’s training facilities on Thursday. He was just 44.

The former Aston Villa, Middlesbrough and England defender, who had been coaching Spurs’ Under-23 side for the past couple of years, was rushed to hospital after collapsing at Hotspur Way yesterday afternoon.

Oh man.

As well as his vastly underrated Premier League input, Ehiogu was also something of a cult icon north of the border at Rangers, chiefly for scoring the club’s 2007 Goal of the Season – a spectacular overhead kick that just so happened to come against Celtic…

Ugo Ehiogu RIP, 1972-2017
