Senior Investigating Officer Det Chief Insp Rob Pack said it is believed Mr Rhule was attacked on Lyall Road before making his way to a parade of shops on Seeley Drive.

He said: "I would like to speak with anyone who witnessed the stabbing or who saw anyone leaving the scene.

"This is a generally quiet area, so I am certain that a number of people will have seen or heard something significant.

"I am also appealing to trace the driver of a blue Renault hatchback, possibly used as an Uber or other private hire vehicle, which picked up a passenger in Seeley Drive at around 6.30pm."

Witnesses have been asked to call 101 quoting reference CAD 6306/8July, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
