It is believed that nobody in the disabled section were harmed following the incident.
After the match, current Killie and ex-Rangers forward Kris Boyd condemned the actions of the over the top fans.
Per The Scottish Sun, Boyd said: "Everybody jumping up and down on top of things, there was a couple of guys beneath us here as well.
"It's something that does need to be sorted. I said it last season as well, when you see scenes like this.
"Look at the state of the (disabled area) now. When you take into consideration, yes, it's a relief that you score the goal.
"Fine, fair enough. But don't be jumping on the pitch and as I said are we going to wait until someone's seriously hurt before we act on it?
"There's no need for it. Yes, celebrate your goal but don't go over the top."
The last gasp winner ensured Steven Gerrard's side an opening weekend Scottish Premiership victory, with the Ibrox outfit hoping to push Celtic for the title this season.
