The striker somehow managed to fall through a glass table in his home which means he will miss his side’s Scottish Cup quarter-final against Queen of the South.
Lyle required 16 stitches in his stomach after the incident. He said: “I was messing about with one of my pals when we tripped on a rug and I went through the coffee table.

The pain is going away and hopefully I’ll get the stitches out on Monday.” So the pain is going away and presumably the pane is too.
