FORMER Rangers and Sporting Gijon player Nacho Novo is said to be in a ‘stable condition’ after suffering a heart attack while playing in a legends tounament.

The Spaniard was playing in a Rangers Legends team at tournament, the AOK Traditions Masters, in Berlin, when the attack occurred.

The 38-year-old was immediately rushed to a Berlin hospital for an operation and the Spaniard’s girlfriend, model, Stephanie Heaney, has now provided an update on his condition.

She wrote on her Facebook page: “Hi everyone I'm absolutely exhausted and with Nacho I appreciate all the messages but I can't answer everyone sorry.

"Nacho is stable and speaking to me and hopefully will be home soon. And thank you.” She also praised the tournament organisers, Rangers football club and the doctors at for their support during the stressful time.

In a separate post, Heaney wrote: “Just want to quickly say that the organiser of this tournament that Nacho was playing at has been amazingly helpful and really looked after myself and my uncle whilst we have been here in Berlin and so supportive would have been lost without him.

“And everyone at Rangers football club have been constantly on the phone and keeping up to date with his progress.

“Nacho’s getting lots of rest at the moment and he's well looked after the doctors have been amazing.

“Thank you again to all the fans and friends for all the amazingly kind messages of support for Nacho.”

A fan favourite among Rangers fans, Novo won three Scottish Premiership titles, two Scottish League cups, a Scottish Cup and reached the final of the 2007-08 UEFA Cup final during his six seasons with the Scottish side.
