Injury Misery for Neil

Neil McGregor’s injury situation took a turn for the worse this week, with the defender having had an operation that will probably end his season.

Following an MRI scan, which revealed bone damage, Neil was advised to go under the knife in order to fix the ankle injury he suffered against Livingston in October. He will now be in plaster for six weeks, with an estimated six week rehabilitation period needed after that.

The news is a major setback for both Neil and the club.

Physio Iain McKinlay explained the situation to

“It was initially felt that he had suffered a ‘normal’ six week ankle injury, but when it didn’t heal in that time we started seeking more advice and it has eventually led to this.

“I have asked the question of the various people involved if there was any way we could have moved his recovery on quicker. They were all of the same opinion that, unfortunately, we could not have.

“Due to the nature of the injury, things had to happen in a certain order. It’s a real shame for Neil.”
