DETECTIVES investigating an assault on a man in Rutherglen have now released a description of a man they want to speak to.

The force's CID revealed they are looking for a man who was wearing a blue tracksuit after a 49-year-old was attacked near an underpass on Burnhill Street at its junction with Mill Street on Thursday at around 4 pm. 

We previously reported that the victim was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow for treatment for serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said inquiries are ongoing and officers are particularly keen to identify a man described as being around 18 to 30-years-old and wearing a blue tracksuit in connection with the incident.

He was last seen running from the area in the direction of the underpass to Chapel Street.
