Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has disclosed that the club are looking to solve Connor McLennan’s injury woes.
The 21-year-old has been out of action for around a month due to a foot injury. McInnes revealed that the club hoped that the player could have made the bench for last weekend’s loss to Ross County. However, injury stopped that from happening.
Now Aberdeen are looking to get the issue resolved. They want to try and get the player back to full fitness and out on the pitch once more.
“Hasn’t really been involved”
“We had to take Connor off at half-time in the game at Motherwell before Christmas and that is why he hasn’t really been involved since then” he said (Evening Express).
“He wasn’t going to be involved on Saturday. But he did some training on Friday and felt as if he could give it a go if we needed him from the bench at Ross County. Unfortunately he was in pain again during the warm-up” McInnes disclosed.
The Aberdeen boss wants the player to return to the side as soon as possible. However, he tempered this by pointing out that getting him fit is the priority at the moment.
“Causing him discomfort”
“It’s something which is causing him discomfort in his foot, and we’re trying to get to the bottom of it. We want to have Connor back involved as soon as possible. But obviously we need to establish what is causing him the pain and how to treat it properly” McInnes concluded.
Aberdeen return to action on Saturday when they take on Motherwell, the team McLennan picked up his injury against.
