Lee in Hospital With Chest Pains

Recommended Posts

RANGERS star Lee McCulloch was last night being treated in hospital after suffering mystery chest pains.


The superfit 32-year-old Scotland midfielder fell ill after the Gers' friendly with Newcastle at Ibrox on Saturday.


Anxious medics feared he had developed a blood clot after the gruelling flight back from his side's trip to Australia last week.


McCulloch had phoned the club doctor, who arranged for him to be whisked to Ross Hall Hospital in Glasgow.


But the former Wigan and Motherwell ace was in so much pain, he was instead driven directly to Wishaw General - the closest medical unit to his home in Lanarkshire.


Docs became concerned when he told them he'd returned from Sydney earlier in the week. They demanded he be kept in overnight for observation.


McCulloch's illness has forced him to withdraw from Scotland's friendly clash with Sweden in Stockholm.


He has not played for the national side since retiring under former boss George Burley.


But he had made himself available to new coach Craig Levein and was set to earn his 16th cap on Wednesday.


It is now believed he has a viral infection in his chest. But initial tests show McCulloch's condition is not serious.


He was understood to be feeling better last night - but medics will assess him again before allowing him home.
