HEAVY NIGHT?

Scottish linesman Andrew McWilliam vomits on the touchline during Kilmarnock vs Dundee clash – and is shown a red card by unsympathetic referee

Woozy whistler's sickness might have been brought on by horrible football in SPL clash, according to Killie's Kris Boyd

A Scottish linesman has been shown a straight red card – for throwing up on the touchline.

Andrew McWilliam was running the line in Saturday’s SPL clash between Kilmarnock and Dundee.

But when Killie won a first half corner as McWilliam was not by the flag.

And when referee Craig Thomson ran over to investigate – he found his assistant a little worse for wear.

The game was then halted as McWilliam spewed next to the advertising hoardings, much to the amusement of fans inside Rugby Park.

And just as the woozy whistler thought things couldn’t get any worse, he was hilariously shown a red card by ref Thomson.

He said: “It was probably watching our performance. It wasn’t the best of games for us.

“Because of the level we’ve been at over the last few weeks, when a performance like that comes along it’s disappointing. We just never got going right from the get-go.”
