Spurs legend Dave Mackay has passed away
Former football star Dave Mackay, who won many titles with Hearts, Tottenham and Derby, is dead. He was 80 years old.

It was Tottenham who he played for from 1959 to 1968, who announced Mackays death.

- He was one of our greatest players ever, and a man who always inspired those around him. He had the talent that made him a complete footballer, according to a statement from the London club.

- He was the heart of our team who won "the Double" in 1961.

The club will honor Mackay with one minute applause before Wednesday's league match against Swansea and players will use mourning bands.

- This is a loss for British football. He was a legend at this club, said manager Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday.

Mackay won all Scottish titles with Hearts before he moved south in 1959. He was a key player when Tottenham in 1961 became the first club in the 20th century who won both the league and the FA Cup in the same season.

- He was my best buy ever, wrote the club's legendary manager Bill Nicholson in his autobiography.

Mackay played 22 caps for Scotland and in 1969 he was named the best player in England.

According to another Tottenham legend, Jimmy Greaves, he was "the best player ever to wear a Spurs jersey."
