Ex-Man United boss Tommy Docherty has passed on at the age of 92.
The family announced the death of Docherty in a statement confirming the former Scotland coach died after a long illness.
"Tommy passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at home. He was a much-loved husband, father, and papa and will be terribly missed," a family spokesperson said in a statement released to the PA news agency.
"We ask that our privacy be respected at this time. There will be no further comment."
Tommy spent nine years as a player with Preston where he won 25 caps for Scotland before he went on to manage 12 clubs.
He first took charge at Chelsea, leading them to the 1964-65 League Cup, before overseeing the fortunes of Rotherham, QPR, Aston Villa, and Portuguese club Porto.
Docherty then took the reins at Scotland but was best known for his five-year spell at Old Trafford, overseeing an FA Cup final win over Bob Paisley’s Liverpool in 1977.
