Rangers mourn loss of legend McDonald

QPR are mourning the tragic loss of former club stalwart Alan McDonald, who died on Saturday at the age of 48.

McDonald made over 400 appearances during 17 years as a player at Loftus Road, where he later returned for a spell as assistant manager.

A hugely popular figure among Rangers fans, McDonald is the club’s most-capped player.

He made 52 appearances for Northern Ireland and starred for them in the 1986 World Cup, which they qualified for with a famous 0-0 draw against England at Wembley.

In a statement, the club said it was “desperately saddened” by the news.
