Former Scotland defender Gordon McQueen diagnosed with dementia
- McQueen played for Manchester United and Leeds
- Family say he wonders whether heading has been a factor
Gordon McQueen, who was revered for his bravery in the air in a career during which he played for Leeds and Manchester United and earned 30 caps for Scotland, has warned modern-day footballers of the risks of heading balls after he was diagnosed with vascular dementia.
His family said that although the 68-year-old was still fully aware of his friends and relatives, his cognitive functions were no longer the same. They said he feared that heading a ball repeatedly may have been a factor.
