Rangers stalwart Jardine in cancer battle

Rangers have announced their long-serving former player Sandy Jardine is having treatment for cancer.

The 63 year old made over 500 appearances for the club as a player between 1965 and 1982, before making more than 200 for Hearts, who he would later manage.

In a statement, Rangers said: "The club will support Sandy and his family in any way it can throughout his treatment and we ask that the media respect his privacy and indeed the privacy of his family.

"Sandy is a true Rangers legend in every sense of the word and has the admiration and respect of every one of his colleagues at Ibrox and Murray Park."

Jardine, who won the 1972 European Cup Winners' Cup with Rangers and also played 38 times for Scotland, said: "I would like to thank everyone for their best wishes and kind support."
