Football mourns Cooper
Tranmere are mourning the death of ex-striker Steve Cooper, who passed away on Saturday at the age of 39.

Cooper signed for Rovers from Barnsley for 100,000 in December 1990 and he has a special place in their history.

His two goals against Brentford in the 1991 play-off semi-final took Tranmere to Wembley and they won promotion to Division One for the second time ever.

He also scored at Wembley in a 3-2 defeat by home-town club Birmingham in the Leyland Daf Cup Final that year.

He moved onto York City in 1993 before heading to Scotland where he was part of the Airdrie team which got to the 1995 Scottish Cup Final, scoring the semi-final winner against Hearts.
