Kilmarnock's Scottish Communities League Cup final joy turned to tragedy within moments of the final whistle when the father of midfielder Liam Kelly suffered a suspected heart attack in the Hampden stand and died.

Jack Kelly, 59, received emergency treatment yards from the Kilmarnock dugout after his son had helped his team to a 1-0 win over Celtic.

Liam Kelly, 22, was told the news as he and his team-mates celebrated on the pitch and was visibly distraught before being moved away from the scene as paramedics treated his father.
