Former Celtic and Rangers women's football star opens up on heartache of sister's death

On the pitch, Rhonda Jones was a fearsome defender, with 117 Scotland caps and a glittering career with some of the biggest clubs in women's football.

But away from the glory of the international sporting stage, her biggest battle was in GP surgeries and psychiatrists' offices wiping away tears as she fought for help for her little sister.

Gemma Jones, 29, who had severe mental health problems, died suddenly in September, leaving behind two young children.

Rhonda and her family, from Newarthill, Lanarkshire, believe Gemma was let down by an NHS struggling to cope with patients with mental health problems.
