Hamilton Accies manager Brian Rice has been left lamenting Hamilton’s injury luck as former Liverpool youngster Ryan Fulton suffers a potentially season-ending injury.

The goalkeeper has had a hard time with injury since arriving at Hamilton from Liverpool in 2017, featuring 44 times, 31 of those appearances coming this season due to various injuries.

It’s been the first regular season of action for the former Liverpool youngster in South Lanarkshire but now ice looks to have ended his term as Hamilton fight for Scottish Premiership survival. Fulton slipped on ice outside his house and looks to have dislocated his knee, Rice already missing several first-team starters to season-ending knocks.

But fellow goalkeeping options in Kyle Gourlay and Ryan Scully will prove suitable replacements for Fulton according to Rice (Daily Record): “It is a massive, massive blow. It was just a freak injury, Ryan has slipped on ice outside his house on Monday.

 

“He is going for a scan later this week but it looks like his season could be over. Ryan is distraught and we are distraught for Ryan. It was just a freak accident. It is a massive blow for us but the good thing is we have two good goalkeepers in Kyle Gourlay and Ryan Scully behind Ryan.

“Kyle has shown what a good goalkeeper when he came in for Ryan previously. One of them will step up and I know they will do well for us. The players and all the coaching staff have every faith in them.”
