A former Scottish footballer visited Ninewells Hospital to donate specialist scanning equipment to detect cervical cancer.

Ex-Rangers and Scotland winger Willie Henderson presented Ninewells staff with the ZedScan device on behalf of the Michelle Henderson Cervical Cancer Trust.

The trust was set up by Mr Henderson’s daughter Michelle who fought cervical cancer before her death at the age of 28.

The ZedScan uses electrical impendance spectroscopy technology to detect abnormalities before they develop into cancer. Changes in the cells of the cervix can lead to cervical cancer, but early detection of cell abnormalities and appropriate treatment can prevent cancer from developing.

Willie said: “Michelle set up the trust to give back to those who had helped her during her treatment. She also wanted to raise awareness of the condition and in turn raise funds towards hospital equipment, medicines and support groups for women suffering from the illness.”

I've been lucky to have the honour of Willie's company.

Legend doesn't do him justice.

Great gesture that will save lives, and something that will keep the memory of his daughter alive, well done Willie Henderson, you were always a class act.

Never knew that he lost his daughter at such a tender age. It’s a fantastic tribute to her legacy that this will probably save the lives of many other young women.

In December 2017 I won the Club1872 Directors Box hospitality. Amongst many players and legends I met was this gentleman.
A good few years ago he and Tommy Gemmell did a turn at our Lodge sportsman shindig. Proper ambassador for Rangers and cancer charity.
