Cappielow stadium

Morton's match at home to Queen of the South was abandoned after a fan collapsed and died following a suspected heart attack.

Referee Don Robertson halted proceedings after 10 minutes.

A Morton statement said: "It was with deep regret that our match against Queen of the South was abandoned due to the tragic death of one of our loyal supporters during the game."

The match was poised at 0-0 at the time of the abandonment.

Morton's statement continued: "All at Greenock Morton Football Club would like to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt sympathy to all family and friends of the gentleman concerned.

"We would further like to register our appreciation for the efforts of the emergency services, St Andrews first aiders and stewards who carried out their duties in a professional and caring manner throughout.

"And finally, our thanks must also go to supporters of both teams who showed patience and great respect as events unfolded."
