‘West of Scotland’ football fans destroyed an area of Rugby Park designated for disabled fans as they celebrated a late goal against Kilmarnock today.

With the match level at 1-1 Connor Goldston headed home the winning goal and raced behind the goal to be met by fans invading the pitch to join the celebrations.

Police and stewards scuffled with fans while those jumping on the roof of the disabled section saw it collapse on top of the fans below. No serious injuries were reported.

In May 2017 there were disturbing scenes at Firhill when a late goal in a Glasgow derby saw another pitch invasion with some fans comparing the scenes to a winning goal in the Champions League.

No comment was made by the SFA or the SPFL with similar incidents reported at matches involving the club from Ibrox.

Kilmarnock are expected to release a statement later tonight about the damage done to their ground, Kris Boyd is likely to tip Ryan Christie and James Forrest to join Kieran Tierney at Arsenal.
