Hibernian FC said "everybody is deeply saddened" that the supporter who collapsed during their match against Kilmarnock has died:
Football is "not as important as human life", Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels said today after a supporter collapsed at their Scottish Premier League match against Hibernian, and later died in hospital.
Speaking at the end of the game, Shiels said: "I heard the supporters shouting to kick the ball out and then we have seen our medical team going across and we found out what it was.
"The fourth official came and told me we need to stop the game. It seems to be pretty serious, a heart attack we were told.
"We waited a while to see if they could bring him round and continue the game but obviously it was quite serious so Pat Fenlon (Hibernian manager) and I both agreed that the game should be abandoned."
Hibernian winger Alex Harris said "some things are more important than football" after a Kilmarnock FC fan collapsed in the stands, causing their match to be abandoned:

"Obviously our thoughts are with him and his family and we hope he will make a recovery. It is a sad occasion for everybody".
A man aged between 50 and 60 has been taken to Crosshouse hospital, after collapsing during a Scottish Premier League match, police said today.
Inspector Sean Mangan, the match commander, said: "A supporter was taken ill in the East Stand, possibly a Kilmarnock fan. Ambulance staff and club doctors have been assisting with that male, he has now gone off to the hospital in the ambulance.
"It is looking like a possible suspected heart attack but of course I am not a medical professional to absolutely tell you that is the case.
"But it is certainly serious enough that the club, in conjunction with the police and the SPL fourth official, have decided out of respect for the male and possibly his family that the match would be abandoned."
