Family, friends and other mourners will gather at Mortonhall Crematorium at 10am in the main chapel for the service.

His family have requested no flowers but donations may be made to the cancer charity Marie Curie.

The former Ranger, Hearts and Scotland footballer lost his 18-month fight with liver cancer last Thursday evening, at the age of 65.

Considered one of the finest defenders ever to emerge from Scotland, Edinburgh-born Sandy Jardine made almost 800 appearances for the Ibrox side, where he won a number of major honours.

He later served the club in a non-playing capacity after finally calling time on his distinguished playing career. and held various roles at Rangers - within public relations, as well as marketing and sales.

He was also capped 38 times by his country and captained the national team on nine occasions.

He is survived by his wife, Shona, his two children, Steven and Nicola, and grandchildren.

In November 2012, it was confirmed that he had been diagnosed with cancer.
