The 59-year-old was involved in a disturbance within a house on Frew Street at around 12.30am on Monday before he was then forced into a dark-coloured car.

It is thought he was then driven over four miles to Rankin Crescent, Greengairs.

He was subsequently left on the road with serious injuries, and was rushed to hospital for treatment.

Hospital staff have described his condition as serious but stable.

Police are appealing for any information regarding the incident, but say they have no description of the suspects.
