The PFA is deeply saddened by the passing of former Portsmouth and Republic of Ireland player Alan McLoughlin.
McLoughlin began his professional career at Manchester United, making 40 appearances for the reserve side.
After leaving United he went on to play for Swindon Town, Torquay United, Southampton and Aston Villa.
In 1992 he moved to Portsmouth where he went on to make 309 appearances including helping them to the 1992 FA Cup semi-final.
In 1999 he left Fratton Park going on to play for Wigan Athletic, Rochdale and Forest Green Rovers.
Mcloughlin won 42 caps for the Republic of Ireland. During a 1994 World Cup qualifier it was his equalising goal against Northern Ireland that helped his side qualify for tournament.
The thoughts and condolences of everyone at the PFA are with Alan’s family and friends.
