Bell Shoulder Op Successful

Recommended Posts

CAMMY BELL’S shoulder operation has passed successfully while Ally McCoist is hoping to welcome at least one face back into his squad for Monday’s game with Hibernian.


Goalkeeper Bell went under the knife earlier this week as he had surgery to repair the joint after he dislocated it in training at Murray Park last Thursday.


That was after he had originally hurt himself during the 2-0 SPFL Championship win over Falkirk on August 15.


Bell is still expected to be sidelined until around Christmas and that remains a real setback for manager McCoist.


But the former Kilmarnock player can now at least make real progress in his rehabilitation as he looks to make a comeback in the course of time.


Elsewhere, Lewis Macleod trained with the squad today after coming off with an ankle problem twice in as many days at the end of last week.


The 20-year-old was hurt in training at Ibrox last Friday and although he was fit enough to start at Alloa, he was withdrawn with the same issue after just 12 minutes.


Macleod missed Tuesday’s League cup victory against Falkirk but McCoist admits he could have a chance of coming back against the Hibees.


Nicky Clark also sat out the trip to Westfield with a sore shoulder after taking a blow in the first half of the weekend clash with the Wasps.


He hasn’t taken part in full training since then but he was able to do some running on the treadmill this morning after receiving treatment earlier in the week and is making strides.


Kenny Miller remains on the sidelines with a calf injury and is keen to return but is being handled with care so that he doesn’t push himself too much.


McCoist said: “Nicky is back running while Lewis was out with us today and didn’t feel any pain.


“Cammy has come through a successful operation which we’re pleased about. As you can imagine, Kenny is champing at the bit to get back and we’re having to hold him back a bit.


“We’re making progress in terms of our shorter-term injuries and I’d hope to see those boys back sooner rather than later.


“I would say Lewis will probably have a better chance of playing against Hibs than Kenny or Nicky but I wouldn’t close the door on anybody.


“I’m optimistic the boys will heal quickly and we’ll give them every chance to do that and play again.”

Must admit I was a bit worried we'd struggle against Falkirk without Macleod and Clark but their replacements certainly played their part in securing the victory.


Got to imagine Macleod will return for the Hibs game with Templeton also starting with Aird struggling for form.
