Walter Smith, who managed Scotland, Rangers and Everton, has died at the age of 73.

In two spells as Rangers manager Smith led the club to 10 top-flight titles, five Scottish Cups and six League Cups as well as to the UEFA Cup final in 2008.

He remains the club’s second most successful manager after Bill Struth.

Smith had four years in charge of Everton and two with Scotland before being enticed back to the Glasgow club.

His death comes in the same year Rangers won their first Scottish Premiership title since Smith’s final season in charge in 2011.
