Sky sports reporting that Alan Gilzean aged 79 diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Sad to hear anyone with that, but thought he should be recognised as ex Boro. Hope he is comfortable and not in distress.

Just to follow up on this, it would seem that Alan has now passed away.

A little bit here about his time as Athletic gaffer: /www.sportsjournalists.co.uk/other-bodies/football-writers/in-search-of-alan-gilzean-dundees-invisible-legend/

In 1976, Alan presented me with my 'Sportsman of the Year' trophy for my sportsmanship behaviour for Colwell Falcons. I often get stopped in the street to this day by people wanting to know where they've seen my face before.
