Former Celtic star McNamara in hospital after collapsing


The family of Jackie McNamara have said the former Celtic captain is receiving the "best care possible" in hospital after he fell ill.

John Hartson, a former teammate at Celtic, stated that McNamara had collapsed on Saturday with a "bleed on the brain".

Hopefully McNamara can now fully recover, and we wish him and his family all the best. Thank you all for your kind words and support.

"We are supporting both Jackie and his family, who request their privacy to be respected at this time". "My thoughts are with his wife Samantha and the children".

The Daily Record report that McNamara is now in a hospital in Hull after originally being taken to a hospital near his home in York.

The bill will then go to the Lords on 25 February, with the aim of getting royal assent on 27 February. An official said legislation would be introduced to the Commons on Tuesday.

McNamara played 33 times for Scotland and is now working as a consultant with Dunfermline.

A post on McNamara's personal Twitter account, yesterday, read: "This is Jackie's daughter".

Simon Donnelly, McNamara's great friend, former Celtic team-mate, managerial assistant and co-owner of a pub in Spain, simply posted images of praying hands, hearts and a strong arm to show his thoughts.

He later managed Dundee United and York City and had recently been involved as a football consultant at Falkirk's rivals Dunfermline.

He joined Celtic in 1995 and went on to play for the Bhoys for over a decade.
