Kenny McLean will miss Scotland’s Euro 2020 push after Norwich City confirmed the midfielder has sustained knee ligament damage.
The injury occurred on the final day of the English Championship season as Norwich City faced Barnsley. McLean appeared for the trophy lift on crutches as Daniel Farke’s side sealed their return to the Premier League as champions. But the 29-year-old has been hit with a huge blow and will miss Euro 2020 for Scotland.
He has been a key member of Steve Clarke’s squad in recent international camps. A Norwich City statement reads: “Kenny McLean is set to be out of action for a period of 12 weeks following confirmation of a knee ligament injury.
“The Scottish midfielder was forced from the field of play following a heavy challenge in the 52nd minute of City’s 2-2 Sky Bet Championship draw away at Barnsley. Subsequent scans and further assessments have since revealed significant damage to the medial collateral ligament in McLean’s right knee.
