    Sir David Gray injury status

    Does anybody know the extent of the injury and how long we're looking at. Gutted he's out again just when he gave an interview about feeling ready to get back fully fit :(

    Early reports suggesting Lennon has said he could be out the rest of the season.

    Yip, looks like it's a serious achilles heel injury and he'll be out for the rest of the season. Are these friendlies actually worth the risk of injuries?

    Apparently he just broke down off the ball, could have happened at any time unfortunately.

    But it could happen at any time, plus he has struggled for fitness this season which might have been a contributing factor in todays injury.

    Heard somebody at work say that was SDGs 6th injury since he came to Hibs. At the very least he has had groin, knee, hamstring and achilles injuries.

    If that's all on the same side that may be an indication of inherent weakness.

    The only positive is this has happened during the January transfer window and I hope Lennon can go and get a right back signed on loan till end of season.

    Gutted for poor SDG tho

    I suspect after this injury Gray has now played his last game for us.

    All the best, Hibs legend of legends.

    We definitely need to sign another right back in this window.

    Yup. We could have done with another fullback regardless, but now it's a must. I'd imagine loaning in a young player from a Premier League team might be our best shout if funds are tight for a mid term fix. Hopefully someone better than McGivern.

    As an aside, I see Dundee have just extended the contract of their left back who was previously at Bilbao. He's always impressed me when I've seen him and would have liked to see us try and sign him.

    Just goes to show how bad a deal 3yrs for Whittaker is. Struggling with a niggling injury too and we can't really have 3-4 right backs on the books.

    Should never have signed him...least of all on a 3 year deal. Now looking like a terrible bit of business

    What is it about Hibs and unfit right-backs?

    Gray and Whittaker both injured. Clancy was constantly injured. Michael Hart was slow and finished by the time he reached us as a result of injuries. Maybury put in a good shift but was old and slow by the time he was with us.

    What do we need to do to get someone out there who is reasonably athletic and able to play most weeks?

    (All the while we've had a wee machine putting in a power of work, crunching into challenges and getting up, going from box to box and playing every single week over on the left side - boy will we miss him when the sad day comes that he can't play for us any more.)

    I'd imagine those 6 injuries are just the ones that have stopped him playing. It was well documented that, under Stubbsy, he played through the pain barrier almost weekly as we didn't have another RB option.

    I suspect this is starting to catch up with him.

    David David Grayyyyyyyyyy. Legend.

    Gutted for him.

    Seems it will possibly be a full rupture or partial Achillesí tendon rupture.

    Both very nasty injuries.

    The guy is a living legend - that goal will never get old and I wish him all the best for a healthy return.

    Bad news about.the injury but maybe.does.us a favour in forcing the issue of getting another right back in ...short loan and permanent in the summer

    Wasnt it an achilles problem that forced Le God to retire. It can take a long time to heal, had it myself and it stopped me from running, jogging, even restricted my hill walking, so for guys who have to run and sprint as professional footballers do, itís not good at all.

    He was actually coming back from Achilles injury and a groin injury the summer prior to that (Scottish cup final, injury picked up at rangers) before he got the managers role and decided to retire. I seem to remember it happeneing against AEK and can still hear the sound of him smashing the dugout in frustration. Good points though.

    Good luck David, Sir.
