Heartfelt messages, scarves and other tributes have flooded in and around the stadium for the footballer who passed away last night.

Jardine was diagnosed with cancer 18 months ago and died peacefully surrounded by his family.

As well as representing Rangers more than 600 times, scoring 77 goals in the process, he was also a 38-time capped Scotland international who featured in two World Cup tournaments and captained his country nine times.

The Edinburgh-born defender was also appointed co-manager of Hearts alongside Alex MacDonald in 1986. While MacDonald ran the team from the sidelines, Jardine was still turning out as a player and, aged 38, he was named Scotland's player of the year for the second time - 11 years after he had claimed the prize whilst playing for Rangers.

Photographers Mark Mainz and Stewart Attwood captured the tributes left by the fans.
