Former Manchester United and Scotland manager Tommy Docherty dies at 92

Former Manchester United and Scotland manager Tommy Docherty has died at the age of 92 following a long illness.

Glasgow-born Docherty made more than 300 appearances for Preston as a player.

He also won 25 international caps for Scotland.

In total, he managed 12 different clubs, including Chelsea, Aston Villa and Derby - as well as a stint in charge of Scotland.

He was best known for his five-year spell at Old Trafford where he won the FA Cup in 1977 - beating Bob Paisley's Liverpool in the final.

However, in 2014, he expressed his regret with his decision to leave the Scotland job for United.

"I was stupid," he told the BBC, adding that he "should have stayed with Scotland. [It was] partly the money, I have to be honest about that."

A family statement in relation to Docherty's death on Thursday afternoon said;

"Tommy passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at home.

"He was a much-loved husband, father and papa and will be terribly missed.

"We ask that our privacy be respected at this time."
