The man, aged in his 50s, collapsed with a suspected heart attack in Rugby Park's East Stand five minutes into the second half of Kilmarnock's home match against Hibernian.

 He was treated by paramedics and medical staff from both clubs before an ambulance drove pitchside to transfer him to nearby Crosshouse hospital.

The match was stopped by the referee with the teams drawing 1-1 and the players left the pitch as the situation became clear.
