Former Scotland captain and coach Dougie Morgan has died at the age of 73.

Morgan passed away in hospital in Edinburgh after an illness on Saturday night.

The scrum-half was capped 21 times for Scotland between 1973 and 1978 and played two Test matches for the British & Irish Lions on their 1977 tour of New Zealand.

After retiring Morgan moved into coaching and became Scotland head coach in the 1993-94 season.

During his tenure, Scotland reached the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals in South Africa and posted their first victory over France in Paris in 26 years.

Former Lions coach Ian McGeechan said: "On and off the field he was a great friend and companion. I have memories I will always cherish and be very thankful for knowing Dougie."
