Hearts boss Craig Levein has provided another injury update as Jake Mulraney became the latest Jambo to suffer an injury.
The Irishman was withdrawn during Hearts’ 1-1 with Rangers. Ryotaro Meshino had Tynecastle rocking before Alfredo Morelos leveled things before the break.
Levein has said that Mulraney will go for a scan on his ankle.
He told the Scotsman (sport, page 3, 21/10/19): “He’s going for an x-ray.
“It’s fairly swollen and it indicates that there’s something wrong.”
Mulraney will be a miss for Levein and Hearts
Mulraney joins a long list of Hearts injury casualties this season. The likes of Peter Haring, Steven Naismith, Jamie Walker, Ben Garuccio, Conor Washington, Craig Halkett, Loic Damour and Craig Wighton are all still injured.
Mulraney’s escaped injury so far but Levein’s update doesn’t make for pretty reading. He clearly fears that Mulraney may have suffered a knock that will leave him without another player for a period of time.
Levein has fielded Mulraney in every Premiership match this term. He’s been a decent attacking figure down the left hand side and the Jambos boss doesn’t really have a natural replacement for him at the moment.
Levein will be hoping that the Irishman’s injury isn’t a serious one.
