Fergie Nears Return to Action

Scott Ferguson is nearing a return to first team action, following a seven-month recuperation period from an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

The popular winger, 21, suffered the knee injury in a match against East Fife in January and underwent surgery, before going through a targeted recovery process.

Clyde manager Barry Ferguson said: “Scott has three more sessions to do this week to catch up on the pre-season schedule that the other boys went through in the summer. He’s had the green light to join in with our training sessions and he’ll hopefully be available to be involved with the team after the International break.

“I want to stress though, that we will need to ease him back into the team gradually. I don’t want people to expect too much from him too early on. He’s coming back from a serious injury and it’ll take him time to get fully up to speed and back to his best again. He’s raring to go and desperate to get back involved, but we will have to put the reins on him a bit, for his own good.

“I also want to give credit to the Board. I asked them to give Scott the best possible treatment and care and they were great in backing me on that. We’re seeing the benefits of it now.

“I’m absolutely delighted that he’s made such a good recovery and that he’s almost ready to return. It’ll be like a new signing having him back.”
