Although not a Motherwell fan(although he is a very keen footballer) my husband has been really badly affected by this tragedy, he seems to have been a very well loved and well thought of gentleman may he rest in peace.
My Heart gose out to his family. As an ex footballers wife it is always very worrying when the are out on the field doing what they love the most as anything can happen at any point which can finish their career. :hug:
From what I have seen in the papers so many people have been affected....footballers, everyone....it's a total tragedy....such a waste of life, not a Motherwell fan myself but he did play for Celtic and Scott MacDonald was in tears.....they (Celtic and Rangers) couldn't have played this game anyway too upset :hug:
This is so sad his family must be in tatters just now.
I remember when another Motherwell player died in similar circumstances years ago Davie Cooper he was around the same age as Phil such a tragic thing to happen.
I was teaching a Primary 7 class in Motherwell when Davie Cooper died. Their "project" had just started then and about half of them handed in ones about him. It reallly affected them with it being so close to home.
