Australian Rules great Len Fitzgerald has died at the age of 76.

After debuting as a 15-year-old in the VFL in 1945, Fitzgerald played 96 games for Collingwood before moving to South Australia where he played 125 games for Sturt.

Fitzgerald won three Magarey medals in the South Australian National Football League and was one of few Victorian players to have crossed the border in the prime of his career.

He was inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame in 1996.

Collingwood released a statement late Tuesday to express their sadness over Fitzgerald's passing.

The Magpies players will wear black arm bands in Saturday's clash against Port Adelaide at the MCG in honour of Fitzgerald's memory.
