The family of Jackie McNamara have said the former Celtic defender is receiving the "best care possible" after he fell seriously ill and was rushed to hospital over the weekend.
The 46-year-old is understood to have been admitted to hospital for brain surgery.
This is Jackie’s daughter.
Thank you all for your kind words and support. My dad is getting the best care possible, as you all can understand this is difficult for us as a family and request privacy at this time. ❤️
