Grant Hanley is in a race against time to be fit for the start of the Premier League season with Norwich City after injury on Scotland duty.

The centre-back was impressive for Scotland at Euro 2020 but was substituted with a hamstring injury as the nation was eliminated by Croatia. Norwich City are back in the Premier League after winning the English Championship last season, but Hanley’s knock against Croatia leave him injured for up to five weeks.

“The defender limped from the field of play in the 33rd minute of the game. Scans have revealed a hamstring injury, with Hanley set to be out of action for approximately four to five weeks.”
