Aberdeen great Neale Cooper is in critical condition in hospital after suffering injuries in a fall over the weekend.

The 54-year-old, part of Aberdeen’s European Cup Winners Cup-winning side in 1983, is at Aberdeen’s Royal Infirmary with family at his bedside.

He was reportedly found at the bottom of a flight of stairs at a block of flats in the Bucksburn area of the city.

Police Scotland North East Detective Inspector David Howieson said: “Police inquiries were ongoing throughout the night to establish the full circumstances, however the incident does not appear to be suspicious.

“I would like to thank the local community for their patience whilst we have dealt with the incident.”

Cooper, who also played for Aston Villa, Rangers, Reading, Dunfermline and Ross County, won a series of honours while at Pittodrie, including two league titles.

He was one of the ‘Gothenburg Greats’ who beat Real Madrid 2-1 to lift the Cup Winners Cup at the end of the 1982-83 season and also went on to land the European Super Cup under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson.

After his playing career, Cooper went on to manage Ross County, Hartlepool United in two spells, Gillingham and Peterhead.
