On-loan Rangers defender Lee Hodson looks to have suffered a season-ending injury and is back with the Gers undergoing treatment.
Hodson joined St. Mirren on a season-long loan in the summer but may now have played his last game for the Buddies after suffering a bad ankle injury.
The full-back was injured in a collision with Ryan Christie in the 4-0 loss to Celtic last month.
The defender’s contract is up at the end of the season – but Saints boss Oran Kearney admits he’ll be out for up to 12 weeks.
“Lee is back at Rangers now and won’t be available again for at least eight to ten weeks,”
Kearney told the Scottish Sun.
“It was a bad one at the time and it was only the fact he had a strapping on his ankle that saved him from more damage.
“He’s got away with it, all things considered, even though he’s still going to miss ten to 12 weeks.”
The Northern Irish international joined from MK Dons under Mark Warburton but has failed to make an impact at Ibrox.
With only 13 games left in the season, it’ll take a massive bit of luck of Hodson to return before then.
It looks almost certain he’ll leave Ibrox in the summer when his deal is up but this injury blow might hinder his attempts to find a new club before then.
