He didn't look a well man as a talking head on the BBC a few months ago, and there was unconfirmed rumblings on forums about cancer. Rangers forums (ta) seem to be doing a Lorimer style lock down on posts for now.

Maybe the person here is putting 2 and 2 together and getting 5 but Souness' facial expressions are telling something. Smith was his No.2 when he was at Rangers

Walter’s family have confirmed through a statement by Rangers that he is in Hospital and had an operation last Monday and he is currently recovering. Almost a week after surgery so unlikely to be in immediate danger right now which is good news, lot younger than someone like Prince Phillip so more likely to recover and leave Hospital.

You don't know that. It depends what it's for.

Philip had a minor heart procedure and had an infection. Smith could have just had major brain surgery for all we know.

Edit: Me and @drol are clearly telepathically linked. :P

True when you put it like that was just thinking about the age difference between the two not considering probable different operations they have had, stupid thing to say on my part. I hope he recovers though always liked and respected Walter.

Gilmar Fubá, a Brazilian defensive midfielder who played for Corinthians, Fluminense and Schalke in Germany, has died of cancer.

He was 45 and had been diagnosed with cancer back in 2017, and although he never achieved any caps for Brazil, he was part of the Corinthians team who won the Club World Cup on home soil.

 

Among his victorious Corinthians teammates were Vampeta, Fernando Baiano, Freddy Rincon, Edu (of Arsenal fame) and Marcos Senna.

Cesare Prandelli posts a heartfelt statement about his departure from Fiorentina, four months after rejoining the club, citing "darkness inside" as his reasoning.

 

He managed the club from 2005-2010, during which time they lost to Rangers in the UEFA Cup semi-finals on penalties, it was during the same time that his wife Manuela died of breast cancer.

Indeed. 2nd of Rob Steen's "The Mavericks" to pass. Less than 50 caps between 'em. Looks like Stan Bowles will be next.
