RIP Phil O'Donnell

RIP Phil O'Donnell

Former Wednesday midfielder Phil O'Donnell has died today after collapsing towards the end of Motherwell's Scottish Premier League game against Dundee United.

The 35-year-old Captain of Motherwell, who played for Wednesday in their latter stages in the Premiership and in the Championship, collapsed just as he was about to be substituted in the clash on Saturday.

Motherwell Manager Mark McGhee told the club website: 'We are all totally devastated and our thoughts are with Phil's wife and family.Phil was a great professional and gave everything when he played the game.This is a shocking tragedy.'

The Bellshill-born player arrived at Wednesday in the summer of 1999 after an impressive start to his career with Celtic, but saw his time at Hillsborough ravaged with injury and fitness problems, limiting him to only 13 starts in four and a half years at the club.

RIP Phil O'Donnell 1972-2007.
