The Elland Road faithful have taken to Twitter to post tributes and memories of Speedo who scored 57 goals for the Whites in 312 appearances between 1988 and 1996.
James (@HotActionKop): Rest in Peace Gary Speed, proud to have met you, a truly humble man, 7 years already. A day to put all rivalries aside.

Cllr Richard Lewis (@rharris_11): 7 years! Gone but never forgotten. My childhood Sporting hero #GarySpeed
Mark (@markgs21): If ever there’s a day to encourage people to talk about #mentalHealth - then today is it. You’re never alone, there’s always someone who will listen, and help. Go and ask your mates how they are, start a conversation. Just don’t let it beat you. Do it for Gary, eh? #GarySpeed
Lee Ellis (@LeedsUnitedLee): I remember when the news broke about #GarySpeed. Day before he was on BBC focus and he seemed ok in himself but we didn’t expect him not to be with us day after, his death showed how mental illness is hidden. If you feel down/Unsure there is always someone to talk to. #SPEEDO
