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.

McNamara, who won four league titles at Celtic and earned 33 caps for Scotland, also played for Wolves, Aberdeen, Fakirk and Partick Thistle.

He has managed Thistle, Dundee United and York City and returned to Dunfermline Athletic as a consultant last year, having started his playing career with the club.

There has been no confirmation of McNamara's illness or his condition.
