Gordon Bulloch and Kenny Logan last night led the tributes to former team-mate Gordon Mackay who died suddenly at the age of 39.

Former Scotland captain Bulloch claimed Mackay, who had a solitary Under-21 cap, one of the best players never to have won full honours.

Mackay, who had been coaching Glasgow Accies, launched his career at Glasgow Academy and joined Accies, before a move to Stirling County and then France.

Bulloch said: "Gordon's career spanned the transition between amateur and professional rugby and I don't think his talents were fully rewarded.

"I can't recall hearing anybody saying anything negative about him and I was totally shattered when I heard the terrible news.

"My heart goes out to his wife and their two young children."

Logan added: "I played alongside 'Scnozz' both for Stirling County and Glasgow and he was a real fun guy.

"There aren't that many larger than life individuals in rugby in the professional era. He was one of them however."
