Former Dundee United and Manchester United player Ralph Milne dies aged 54.

Former Dundee United and Manchester United winger Ralph Milne has passed away at the age of 54.

The Scotsman, who had been in hospital receiving treatment for liver problems, was inducted into Dundee United's Hall of Fame six years ago.

During his 15-year career, Milne, who retired from football without earning a full cap for Scotland, also played for Charlton Athletic and Bristol City.

A statement on Dundee United's website read: "Ralph can now take his seat in the main stand on high alongside other departed club legends."

Chairman Stephen Thompson added: "This is a very sad day. Ralph's skill and flair epitomised the Dundee United teams he graced and he was undoubtedly one of the finest footballers to hail from the city of Dundee.

"He remains Dundee United's top goalscorer in Europe and I am grateful to have watched him in his prime many times during those fantastic years he starred for United.

"It was a privilege to have known Ralph and he will be remembered fondly and missed sadly by arabs everywhere."

Milne spent three years playing at Old Trafford.
