The ace slotted home from the penalty spot in the 61st minute before sprinting off towards the travelling supporters to celebrate.

He leaped over the initial hoardings before running and jumping over a concrete bollard separating the fans from the pitch.

However, unknown to Kololli, there was a big drop on the other side.

And amazing footage shows the star disappearing out of sight in front of shocked fans.

Stewards and teammates rushed towards the stricken player, who was still invisible to the camera.

But after a few seconds he was hauled to his feet and scrambled back onto the pitch looking visibly shaken.

Thankfully he was able to continue and help his team secure the all-important win.

Whether Kololli decides to sprint towards fans when away from home in the future remains to be seen.
