During his playing days Mackay won the double with Tottenham Hotspur during an illustrious playing career, and later won the league with Derby as a manager in 1975.

He also managed Nottingham Forest, Walsall and Birmingham City.

Spurs confirmed the news in an official statement on their website, saying that the ex-midfielder passed away at Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham on Monday.

He also represented Scotland 22 times, and was described by George Best as: “The hardest man I have ever played against – and certainly the bravest.”

50-year-old Gloris Smith left her home in Nuthall on 22nd October. Her family are appealing to anyone who might know where she is to get in touch. There was a sighting in Nottingham around Christmas time, but nothing since.
