The former Scotland. Manchester United and Rangers goalkeeper drove himself to hospital in the early hours of Thursday after suffering chest pains.

Since then Goram, 40, has been undergoing tests at the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow.

It is understood doctors diagnosed him with an inflamed heart muscle, a condition known as myocarditis.

Miriam Wylie, Goram’s ex-wife, today said he was making good progress.

She said: “At the time he was petrified and did not know what was happening to him.

“But I saw a major improvement in him over the weekend and he is a lot better than when he went in.

“I expect him to be let out in the next few days.”

A hospital spokesman described Goram’s condition as stable.

During a glittering playing career Goram was capped 43 times for Scotland and inspired Rangers to six league titles, three Scottish Cups and three league cups.
