That's sad news. How did his career go after Rangers? Did he also play for Hearts?

A disproportionately high number of sports people seem to suffer from MND or is it just that we tend to hear about anyone who is relatively well-known who is struck down by it? Does anyone know if any research has been done to investigate a possible link between top-level sport and MND?

It is indeed a terrible affliction. It would be nice to think that mankind could find solutions to such diseases one day, but that day isn’t yet with us. David Hagen played for Rangers, Hearts and Falkirk among others - another of our Scottish football fraternity gone too young. Sad news. RIP.

We watched the disease take my father in law over a short period of time. It was a horrible horrible time.
He's in a better place now.

MND is another term for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, commonly recognised in the USA as Lou Gehrig's disease - a big pre war baseball star.

His story was made into a major film with Gary Cooper.

A horrible affliction.
