Clyde full-back Scott Durie is set for a further spell on the sidelines due to injury.
Scott was an ever-present in the team last season but, as reported earlier in the month, he is suffering from a double hernia which is currently keeping him off the pitch.
Barry Ferguson said: “Scott was due to go in for an operation on Monday, but unfortunately that’s now been delayed. We only got the news yesterday so we need to have a rethink now and see if there’s another route we can take.
“At the moment it’s looking like a couple of months before we will see him in action again.
“He’s a good player for us so it’s frustrating but we’ll look into any option we have to speed up his return.”
