Former Scotland boss Craig Brown has passed away aged 82.

The legendary manager, who lived in Ayrshire, sadly died on Monday having been in hospital through illness.

Glasgow-born Brown holds the title of longest-serving Scotland manager, having led the national team to Euro 1996 and the 1998 World Cup in a nine-year spell.

Brown started in management at Clyde, where he remained between 1997 and 1986, before spending seven years at the helm of the Scotland under-21 side.

Following his time in charge of the national team, Brown went on to manage Preston North End, Motherwell, and Aberdeen.

Brown was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 1999 Birthday Honours list for his services to football.

He was inducted into the Scottish Football Hall of Fame in 2010.

Brown began his footballing career in Ayrshire, as a youth player at Kilmarnock Amateurs, before going professional at Rangers in 1957.

He had loan spells at Coltness United and Dundee before moving to Dens Park permanently in 1961.

Brown also counted Falkirk in his former clubs before moving into management with his career cruelly cut short through knee injuries.
