RANGERS legends Ally McCoist and Mark Hateley visited Davie Cooper’s statue in Hamilton this afternoon to pay tribute to the Ibrox icon.
A hero among fans of the Light Blues, Cooper is also a legend at Motherwell, Clydebank and with the Scotland national team, and holds a place in the Scottish Football Hall of Fame.
McCoist, a former teammate and great friend of Cooper, and Hateley, on behalf of Rangers Football Club, laid a floral tribute at the statue in the town’s Palace Grounds.
McCoist played alongside Cooper from 1983 to 1989, and said today: “I can’t believe its 25 years since we lost Davie.
“There are obviously a lot of nice things which get said, particularly about people when they pass away, but I think you can see the honest feelings and tributes that are coming for Davie from all over the world.
“He was a truly gifted player and an even better human being.”
