Detectives are investigating after a man who was found seriously injured in the Milton area on Sunday 18 November 2018 died in hospital.

The 28 year old victim was discovered in Ashgill Road around 2.30pm on Sunday and was taken to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary where he succumbed to his injuries in the early hours of Thursday 22 November 2018.

The man’s relatives are aware.

A post mortem examination will take place in due course to establish the exact cause of death, which officers are treating as suspicious.

A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
