As a Leeds player he was instrumental in the First Division Champions title.
He played with passion and gave 100% regardless of which team he played for.
I am pleased that my timeline on twitter is full of great memories and condolences. I know how easy some people find these times to try to be 'funny' or just post obnoxious messages, so thank you.
It does show how well respected Speed was.
I was fortunate enough to meet Gary on several occasions and he was always a true gentleman.
I am truly honoured to have met him and humbled to have been in his company.
I don't know why Gary lost his life, nor do I think it is for anyone to speculate.
When someone takes their life, it's tragic for all those affected.
