Commenting on the tragic death of Gary Speed, Lady Elsie Robson said “I’m very shocked and very sad.
“Gary was a lovely boy and Bob thought a lot about him as a player and as a person.
“He regarded him with great respect and he was such an important part of the team Bob had at Newcastle.
“He was a wonderful and generous supporter of our charity and seemed to have a bright future ahead of him.
“I hope those who loved him don’t suffer too much.”
Gary most recently supported the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation by attending the charity’s golf day in April and he also undertook the London Marathon to help raise funds.
He will be a great miss.
