Legends return to Pay Respects

Former Leeds midfielders Gordon Strachan, David Batty and Gary McAllister will return to Elland Road on Saturday to pay their respects to Gary Speed.Speed was found hanged at his home in Cheshire on Sunday and the trio, who starred alongside the former Wales coach when Leeds won the First Division title in 1992, will join in the tributes before Saturday's home game against Millwall.The three ex-players will join in the minute's applause before the 12.30pm kick-off and will each lay a wreath in memory of Speed.Leeds manager Simon Grayson and Millwall counterpart Kenny Jackett will also lay wreaths, while a special montage of Speed will be shown on the big screen prior to kick-off.Chairman Ken Bates this week confirmed the club will be officially naming a new East Stand suite in memory of Speed before kick-off.
