Former Scotland Defender Gordon McQueen Has Been Diagnosed With Vascular Dementia.

: 23/02/2021 - 14:35

 

Former Manchester United, Leeds and Scotland defender Gordon McQueen has been diagnosed with vascular dementia.

His family has released a statement saying they've chosen to tell people as raising awareness may "help others in similar situations".

They go on to say how McQueen wants "footballers of today’s generation to know there may be risks with persistent heading of the ball."

The news comes after his former teammate Jack Charlton and 1966 World Cup winner Nobby Stiles died last year with the condition.
