Former Celtic captain Jackie McNamara is at home recovering around three weeks after suffering a bleed on the brain.
The 46-year-old, a Scotland international during his career, collapsed at his home in York in early February.
McNamara has been making progress in recent weeks and took to social media to thank the paramedics and hospital staff involved in his treatment.
He said: “I have been overwhelmed by the messages of support for me and my family, from the football community and supporters, during what has been an extremely worrying and emotional time.
“I would like to personally thank the paramedics, York Hospital and Hull Royal Infirmary who have been phenomenal, if it wasn’t for these services I wouldn’t be here today.
“It will be a slow and steady process but I’m on the road to recovery. I am back home with my family and feel very grateful.”
