Ray Wilkins dies

in Sport · 05-04-2018 14:55:00 · 0 Comments

Former Chelsea captain and England midfielder Ray Wilkins has died in hospital following a cardiac arrest. He was 61. Wilkins, who won 84 England caps, had been treated in St George’s Hospital in Tooting, south-west London since Friday.

St George’s Hospital confirmed Wilkins had died on Wednesday morning, and issued a statement on behalf of the family.
Wilkins had carried out media duties on talkSPORT and Sky Sports - he was a regular pundit on both platforms - shortly before suffering the cardiac arrest, and was taken to St George’s Hospital on Friday.
He became the fourth player sent off while playing for England when he was dismissed during the 1986 World Cup finals in Mexico in a game against Morocco.
During his career as a player, Wilkins won the FA Cup with Manchester United in 1983, scoring a memorable goal in the first tie against Brighton at Wembley, which ended 2-2. He also won the Scottish title with Rangers in 1989.
