Queen of the South manager Allan Johnston has had his Ramsdens Cup winning medal stolen when thieves took his car.

The Kia Sportage was taken from outside his home in the early hours of Monday.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman confirmed they were investigating a vehicle theft in Bothwell, South Lanarkshire, sometime between 01:30 and 8:00.

She appealed for anyone with information about the incident to contact them.

Queen of the South won the cup final against Partick Thistle on penalties in Livingston on Sunday night.

It capped a fine first year in charge of the Dumfries side for their 39-year-old manager who also steered the club to promotion from the Scottish Second Division.

He was a non-playing substitute for the Doonhamers, securing the first cup winner's medal of his long playing career at clubs including Hearts, Sunderland and Rangers.

The car stolen with the medal inside was a club vehicle and had the Queen of the South logo on it.

Anyone with information about the theft has been asked to phone police on 101.
