FORMER Hull, Bradford and Sheffield United football star Dean Windass has been made bankrupt after a court heard that he owed the taxman more than £150,000.
A specialist judge made a bankruptcy order against 47-year-old Windass on Monday at a Bankruptcy & Companies Court hearing in London.
Registrar Stephen Baister granted an application by a lawyer representing HM Revenue & Customs.
Windass, who comes from Hull, was not at the hearing and was not represented by a lawyer.
A judge had overseen a preliminary hearing in October - where it emerged that Windass owed more than £150,000.
Windass had not attended that hearing but had been represented by barrister Sri Carmichael.
Striker Windass made more than 600 appearances and scored more than 200 goals in a career which began in the early 1990s and lasted around 18 years.
He played for more than half a dozen clubs, including Hull, Bradford, Middlesbrough, Sheffield United and Aberdeen.
His 22-year-old son Josh, also a striker, plays for Rangers.
