Aberdeen’s Mikey Devlin has not the best of luck with injuries in his Aberdeen career. The centre-back missed the start of the season with a hamstring injury, and in his time at Pittodrie had a foot injury in his first season at the club.

Now, as reported on NTOF, Derek McInnes has confirmed that the player will be out of action until March, after picking up what looks to be a freak injury in training.

Suffered training ground injury

As explained by McInnes, the 27-year-old blocked a shot on the training ground, which led to Devlin suffering a foot injury, and as a result the player needs an operation, and is set to miss three months of action.

The timing is particularly cruel for Devlin as he had only just made his first appearance of the season. He came on as a late substitute in the 1-1 draw with St Mirren.

It is also bad timing for the player if he wants to get back into the Scotland squad. With the European Championships next summer, he won’t have that long to prove that he is fit enough to make that squad picked by Steve Clarke.

Some fans bemoan player’s luck

Some Aberdeen fans on social media have had their say on Devlin’s latest setback. The vast majority commented on how unlucky that the player has been in his time with the club. One fan gave the two-word comment ‘dearie me’ which could sum up how a lot of fans feel about the player’s circumstances.
