Former Rangers player Ugo Ehiogu dies at age of 44
He was working as the under-23s coach for Spurs when he suffered cardiac arrest.
Former Rangers defender Ugo Ehiogu has died aged 44 after collapsing at a football training ground.
The Tottenham Hotspur under-23 coach, who played for the Ibrox club in 2007, suffered a cardiac arrest at the training centre on Thursday.
Tottenham confirmed Ehiogu died in the early hours of Friday in hospital.
In a statement, the London club said: "It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of Ugo Ehiogu."
Ehiogu won four caps for England during his career. He moved to Rangers after spells with Aston Villa and Middlesbrough. He retired from playing in 2009 after a short spell with Sheffield United.
One of the highlights of his time with Rangers was scoring with an overhead kick in a 1-0 win over Celtic in March 2007.
Spurs' head of coaching and player development, John McDermott, said: "Words cannot express the sadness that we all feel at the club. Ugo's immense presence will be irreplaceable.
"Our heartfelt sympathies go out to his wife Gemma and his family."
Rangers have paid tribute to their former defender.
In a statement released from the clubs website they said: "RANGERS Football Club is shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of former defender Ugo Ehiogu.
"The 44-year-old Englishman joined the Light Blues when Walter Smith returned as manager in 2007 and made a huge impact in his short time in Glasgow - notably his winning goal at Celtic Park in the derby.
"He died after suffering a heart attack at Tottenham's training ground and everyone associated with the club sends their sincere condolences to Ugo's family and friends at this difficult time."
City rivals Celtic have also paid tribute to the former Rangers, Aston Villa and England player.
On twitter they said: "The thoughts & prayers of everyone at Celtic are with the family & friends of former Rangers defender, Ugo Ehiogu, following his sad passing."
