A Partick Thistle fan was rushed to hospital on saturday afternoon after he collapsed in the stands during the Jags' draw with Hamilton.

Supporters watched in horror as one of their own fell to the ground in the visitors section of Foy Stadium at around 4.15pm.

Worrying images showed the stricken fan carried out in a stretcher by a number of paramedics.

Cops confirmed he was taken to University Hospital Hairmyres for treatment.

The man's condition is not yet known.

One social media user hailed a "life-saving" punter - Dave Mansell - who rushed to the person's side and gave CPR.

Matt Greer said: "The best performance I’ve ever seen at a Thistle game came today from a fellow fan.

"Boy a couple a seats along from me collapsed, and a fan ran over, cleared the area and performed CPR, possibly saving his life.

"Outstanding from that fan. Speedy recovery."

He also claimed the Hamilton Accies club doctor helped where he could as the two sides drew 2-2 in the Betfred Cup.

Home side midfielder Ronan Hughes also had to be taken off during the game after he is understood to have passed out.

"Our club doctor did attend to assist response teams. We are unaware on the individuals condition at this time and it would be inappropriate to comment any further at this moment in time.

"Nobody should go to a game of football and not be able to go home afterwards so on that aspect we do hope the fan is ok and has a speedy recovery."
