Tributes have been paid to former Wolverhampton Wanderers player Frank Munro who has died aged 63.

The Scottish international made 371 first team appearances for Wolves in the 60s and 70s.

The club's website said Mr Munro had suffered a heart attack and passed away at the city's New Cross Hospital on Tuesday.

Former Wolves goalkeeper Phil Parkes described Mr Munro as a "lovely fellow" and "quality player".

Mr Munro was part of the Wolves side that made it to the UEFA Cup Final in 1972 and he gained a League Cup winners' medal two years later.

The club has sent its condolences to Mr Munro's family and friends.
