Footballers pay respects to Ablett


Former team-mates and current professionals were among the mourners who attended the funeral of ex-Liverpool and Everton defender Gary Ablett on Tuesday.

The 46-year-old died on New Year's Day after a 16-month battle with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish and Everton boss David Moyes were present at the city's Anglican Cathedral along with many of Ablett's team-mates - including John Barnes, Alan Hansen, Mark Lawrenson, Duncan Ferguson, Matt Jackson and David Unsworth - and other contemporaries from the 1980s and early 1990s.
