Honduran international footballer Arnold Peralta has been shot dead while on holiday in his hometown.

He was killed in the car park of a shopping centre in La Ceiba, on the country's Caribbean coast. The motive for the attack is unclear.

The 26-year-old midfielder for Olimpia, in the capital Tegucigalpa, played for Scottish giants Rangers until January.

Honduras is plagued by gang violence and has one of the highest murder rates in the world.

"This is terrible," his father Carlos told a news conference. "They killed my exemplary son. I can't say more because of the pain I feel."

Osman Madrid, director of the Honduran football federation, said it was a "tragic death that the national sport mourns".

No arrests have been made. Police ruled out robbery as a possible motive because Peralta had not had his belongings taken.

Rangers will tomorrow hold a minutes silence and wear black armbands in tribute to the former player.
