The former Wimbledon and Newcastle United manager has died at the age of 77 after being diagnosed with vascular dementia in 2015.

Dublin-born Kinnear, who won 26 caps with the Republic of Ireland, joined Tottenham as a teenager in 1963 before making his debut in 1966.

He spent the next decade at White Hart Lane, winning the FA Cup in 1967, the UEFA Cup in 1972 and the League Cup in both 1971 and 1973, making more than 250 appearances for the club before spending his final season at Brighton.

The Irishman began his coaching career in Asia, working in the UAE and Malaysia, and then with India and Nepal.

On his return to England, he became Dave Mackay’s assistant at Doncaster and eventually took the top job at Wimbledon in 1992.

There, he led the Dons to a sixth-placed finish in the top flight in the 1993-94 season, and took them to the semi-finals of the FA Cup and the League Cup in 1997.

In March 1999, Kinnear suffered a heart attack before a league game against Sheffield Wednesday and stood down in June of that year.

After Wimbledon, he went on to manage Luton Town, Nottingham Forest and Newcastle United.
