Former Dundee Utd, Man Utd winger Milne passes away

Dundee United great Ralph Milne has died aged 54 in Scotland.

The former Tannadice Park winger passed away in Dundee after a short illness with liver problems.

Milne is best remembered for scoring a goal that saw Dundee Utd take out the 1983 Scottish Premiership over neighbours Dundee.

The former Charlton Athletic and Bristol City midfielder was also surprisingly signed by Manchester United in 1988, playing under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Dundee Utd chairman Stephen Thompson told the club's official website: "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."
