The football world is in a state of shock today following Ugo Ehiogu's tragic death.
While training with Tottenham Under-23s on Thursday, the Englishman collapsed and suffered a cardiac arrest. He was rushed to hospital but sadly passed away this morning.
As a former Aston Villa, Middlesbrough, Rangers and England player, Ehiogu touched the lives of many throughout his playing career.
He only played nine games for Rangers throughout a spell that lasted a year, but the Gers released a touching statement nevertheless.
"Rangers Football Club is shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of former defender Ugo Ehiogu," it read.
"The 44-year-old Englishman joined the Light Blues when Walter Smith returned as manager in 2007 and made a huge impact in his short time in Glasgow - notably his winning goal at Celtic Park in the derby.
"He died after suffering a heart attack at Tottenham's training ground and everyone associated with the club sends their sincere condolences to Ugo's family and friends at this difficult time."
As Rangers touched upon, Ehiogu provided one moment of magic during his time at the club: his brilliant overhead kick in a 1-0 win at Celtic Park in 2007.
In the video below, Ehiogu - who was a centre-back by the way! - acrobatically found the top-right corner to open the scoring and silence Celtic's fans. Check it out.
EHIOGU: CLINICAL STRIKER IN DISGUISE
Stunning. Ehiogu only scored a handful of goals throughout a career that spanned 20 years, but this was undoubtedly his finest.
His wonder strike was ultimately in vain as Rangers finished runners-up to Celtic in the Scottish Premier League for a second season running.
The England international was released the following January and joined Sheffield United, where he retired a year later.
Ehiogu's career may have been plagued by injuries, but his contributions to English football as a player and coach will live long in the memory.
