Ex-Rangers star Nacho Novo in hospital after 'heart attack'
The incident happened while he was in Germany for a legends tournament.
Former Rangers striker Nacho Novo has been taken to hospital after suffering a suspected heart attack.
The incident happened on Saturday evening in Berlin, where the 38-year-old was competing in a legends tournament.
Novo was part of a team of former Rangers players at the AOK Traditionmasters competition at the Max-Schmeling-Halle arena.
His partner Stephanie Heaney, who has flown out to Germany to be with him, said Novo was in a stable condition and had spoken to her.
Posting on Facebook to thank well-wishers, she said: "Nacho is stable and speaking to me and hopefully will be home soon."
About 8000 people were expected to turn out to watch Novo play in Berlin, along with other Rangers greats including Andy Goram and Gordon Durie.
Glentoran FC, who the Spaniard played for between 2016 and 2017, said it wished him a swift recovery.
"Best wishes to our former player for a swift and full recovery in hospital in Berlin after taking ill after playing in a masters tournament yesterday," the club tweeted.
