Ex-Thistle star held on death fight rap.

A SCOTS footballer was arrested yesterday shortly after a man died in a fight.

Ex-Partick Thistle midfielder Scott Ramsay, 29, was being quizzed by cops in Keflavik, Iceland, after a pilot died in an early-hours brawl in a restaurant.

Chief Superintendent Karl Hermannson said: 'We have a 29-year-old British male in custody. The man who died was hit with a fist in the head.'

The man was named last night as Flemming Tolstrup, 23, a lieutenant in the Danish air force who was on a posting to Iceland with six colleagues.

Ramsay was given a free transfer from Partick Thistle in 1996 by manager Murdo McLeod. He moved to Iceland and quickly became a major hit in the country's national league.

He came back to Scotland six years ago and played briefly for Stranraer before returning to Iceland.

He signed for Keflavik and is regarded as a hero by fans in Iceland's second city.
