The daughter of Jackie McNamara has revealed the former Celtic captain is “making progress” in his battle back from a major health scare.
The Hoops idol, 46, underwent emergency surgery earlier this month for a suspected brain bleed after collapsing at his home in York.
On Wednesday night, his daughter Erin issued an update on her dad’s condition.
Posting on Twitter, she said: “Thank you for the continued support for my dad, the past week has been so overwhelming for us as a family.
“He is making progress but still has a long road to recovery.
“We are so thankful for all the care he’s received and remain positive.”
Last week, former teammates of the ex-Scotland ace, including Darren Jackson and John Hartson, said his condition had improved.
“Hearing Jackie McNamara is sitting up and talking is wonderful news,” Hartson said on social media.
Celtic manager Neil Lennon described McNamara as a “strong guy”.
He said: “He’s a fit boy for someone of his age and he’s been fit all his life. I’m hoping and praying that he comes through okay.”
