It is heartbreaking to learn of the death of one of Scotland’s most legendary goalkeepers. According to reports, Andy Goram died in the early hours of Saturday (July 2).
The Scottish Premiership club issued a statement shortly after midday on Saturday, confirming the tragic news.
What type of cancer did Andy Goram have?
The former Scotland and Rangers goalkeeper died of cancer at the age of 58. Goram revealed earlier in May that he had terminal cancer and only had six months to live.
Doctors informed the legendary goalkeeper that chemotherapy would only extend his life by another 12 weeks, however, he declined.
Goram was capped 43 times for Scotland in football and four times in cricket, making him the only Scot to have played at the highest level in both sports.
Rangers won five Scottish Premier League titles, three Scottish Cups, and two League Cups with his assistance. Goram was also on loan at Manchester United during their successful Premier League campaign in 2000-01.
