RUGBY great Doddie Weir celebrated his 50th birthday by being inducted into Scottish Rugby's Hall of Fame.

The former Scotland and Gosforth/Newcastle Falcons lock, who represented the British Lions in South Africa in 1997, has made a big impact on and off the field.

Since revealing in 2017 that he had motor neurone disease, his My Name'5 Doddie Foundation has raised more than £5.8m for MND research.

He said: "I owe so much to the game of rugby, and to our great rugby family in particular. The support I received from players and supporters throughout my career and now in my battle to find a cure for motor neurone disease has been immense, and has given me the strength to keep fighting."

At last year's BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards, Doddie received the Helen Rollason Award for outstanding achievement in the face of adversity.
