Hawkins in collapse scare after win

COLIN HAWKINS is a serious worry for Shamrock Rovers after the Hoops' player/coach was taken to hospital immediately after last night's 1-0 win away to Derry City, writes AIDAN FITZMAURICE.

Hawkins appeared to collapse while walking off the pitch in the Brandywell, having taken a kick to the ribs a few moments earlier.

"I am very concerned about Colin and we have to see how he is today," Rovers boss Stephen Kenny said.

"He's been taken to Altnagelvin hospital, it's something in the lung area and it's a concern."
