Hearts goalkeeper Philemon McCarthy has been rushed to hospital in a private car after he suffered an injury during Sunday’s city derby against Liberty Professionals.

McCarthy was replaced after the break and immediately whisked into a private car to a nearby hospital facility as there was no ambulance in sight.

The GFA's regulation indicates that a match must not start until there is an ambulance stationed at the match venue yet the match went ahead without it.

The 24-year-old had been limping throughout the first half and failed to clear on attempt which profited the speedy Michael Appiah to slot home the opening goal.

Youngster Kingsley Kissi too his place but has been far from convincing after conceding two goals at the Alhaji Sly Tetteh stadium.

Several players have died at various stadia across the country with Dansoman witnessing the death of Kessben player Bartholomew.

    Hearts and their players could lie. They always go to the hospital when they are losing.
