Footie legend Ray Wilkins left just £4k in will after dying from heart attack last year


FORMER England star Ray Wilkins left just over £4,000 in his will.

The Chelsea, QPR and Manchester United legend left his rings, watches and ­other jewellery to son Ross, 37, and daughter Jade, 33, in a simple, one-page will. 

And he bequeathed his savings to estranged wife Jackie, who lives in the £1.2million Surrey mansion they once shared. 

Probate figures show Wilkins left a gross estate of £18,016, leaving a net £4,281 after outstanding affairs were settled. 

It is not known if the size of his estate was the result of ­efficient tax planning. 

Wilkins, who was 61 when he died of cardiac arrest in April last year, struggled with alcoholism and depression. 

At the time of his death he was living in a rented flat. 

He once said: “Footballers who think they are special are making a terrible mistake.”
