Tributes to Leeds legend Gary Speed

Tributes from across the world of football are being paid to Gary Speed.

 

Scarves, shirts and flowers have been left outside Gary's former clubs in his memory.

Leeds, Sheffield, Bolton and Newcastle fans have all paid tribute.

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson spoke to Eamon Holmes about his friend and former team-mate Gary Speed.

 

Title winning Leeds United manager Howard Wilkinson has paid an emotional tribute to our former player Gary Speed.

Wilko was the man who gave Gary his debut in 1989 and brought him into the promotion winning side almost 12 months later when he played a big part in the final push for Division One football.

Wilko said:

"I can't seem to accept that Gary would ever get anywhere near this sort of situation because he was…through all those years I knew him at the club from being a teenager…such a normal, ordinary boy, man, who happened to love playing football.

"His record speaks for itself as a player. Undoubtedly during the years he was with me at Leeds he was one of the most important members of the team, the squad, and the club.

"All the people in Leeds, who not only supported Leeds, but people around the town who got to know him will tell you the same - once he got his kit off, his tracksuit off, he was the sort of person you would like to think most households in the country were filled with.

"There was nothing about him that you wouldn't love. He always had a great amount of respect. He always had respect in the game and for people in the game, and some players today would be a million miles away from where Gary Speed was at.

"The biggest loss is the loss that his mum and dad are feeling at this time, Louise his wife, the boys, and what they will miss is what the rest of us will miss, and the world will be a poorer place for him not being around."

Police say there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding Gary Speed's death.
