Anyone got any idea how long he is out for? Yesterday showed how much we miss him when he's injured. Our right hand side looked dodgy all afternoon. Big miss and can't wait till he's back

Need him back ASAP hope the rumour about him falling out with Lennon is keek.

If NL is here next season I very much doubt David Gray will be. No inside knowledge I just get the impression NL would rather go with other options. At the AGM is was clear NL didn't think much of David Gray being referred to as Sir.

If Lennon leads us to the Scottish Cup he can get a Hibs Knighthood too. SDG is the best captain we have had for decades. I think we have tried 5 since he has been out injured, Efe, Marv, Lewis, Milligan and Hanlon, and we have not looked like a team and have look leaderless on and off the park. The passion is nowhere near as evident in the team or Lennon

Don't think that's the case when SDG is fit Lennon plays him. Lennons comment at the AGM was based on his fitness.

Badly miss his leadership on the park. Hope heís back soon, especially with this very busy December schedule.

If Neil Lennon goes head to head with SDG, I know who will come out best ... SDG is a key part of the club and its feel good factor

Nobody. We all lose because we don't need that sort of disharmony behind the scenes.

With the likes of Gray and McGreggor missing yesterday and McGinn gone I found myself questioning who was going to take things by the scruff of the neck and drag us through the game. The answer was nobody really although Efe gave it a go.

We need other players to step up to the plate and show a bit of the grit and leadership someone like Gray has. He was a big miss and not just for his football ability.

That's how I interpreted it also. No ill feelings between the 2, just Lennon raising questions about SDG's fitness and how that was impacting his new contract - similar to last year's comments about McGeoch at the AGM.

What did he say at the AGM?

He was asked about players who would be out of contract in the summer being offered new deals. in particular the guy asking said Sir David Gray. NL said he needed to string more than a few games together before that would be considered. I'm maybe wrong but I got the impression NL didn't like him being referred to as Sir + he's often went with other options even when DG has been fit.

Like I said I have no inside knowledge I just don't think he'll be offered a new deal. I hope I'm wrong.

Sir David is the heart and soul of our club. What he did on 21/05/16 still makes me jump around the living room.

But thereís so much more to him than a winning goal. He was down injured 5 minutes before. Heís a leader of men. He gives us an out ball on the right that nobody else does.

Yes, he has his limitations as a footballer, but I donít see anyone else in our squad digging in like he does when the going gets tough.

And if thereís a better right back out there within our budget, Iím all ears

I believe he'll get a new contract but think it will be maybe on slightly reduced terms.

And rightly so, frankly he has had a lot of time off due to injury, plus recovery gets harder at his age.

Iím sure I have heard Lennon referring to Sir David as Sir David in the past.

I think his comments were a bit tongue in cheek at the agm.

Gray is sorely missed. He can keep the others up to the mark. Dangerous at corners too!

Gray is also a leader and an inspiration, something that is distinctly lacking currently when he's not on the park.

Anybody who supports the club or is employed in any capacity by the club that thinks we would be better off without SDG needs to be launched.

SDG is what we are all about, and he is that more than anybody else.

For me, (Sir) David Gray is probably the most influential and inspirational player at the Club. Hope to hell he's back in the side just as soon as poss. We're just not the same without him imo.

Whilst I donít think David Gray should necesarilly be emptied, he does need to put together a consistent run of games.

I think he only played about a dozen games last season and even when heís started games this season, heís failed to complete 90 minutes quite a few times. Thatís no good to us. Needs to prove his fitness in the second half of the season. I hope he can because, forgetting who he is for a minute, he was our best player by a mile when he was playing this season IMO.

I'd also add to this that for me SDG should be drilling home what Hibs mean to the younger players coming through the youth set-up in the hope we have more players fighting for the badge.

Definitely. Forgetting his heroics previously, his performances this season have been outstanding. Just a shame heís not been available nearly often enough.

I am eternally grateful to David Gray for his cup winning header, but reality, not sentiment should prevail when it comes to future playing requirements surely.

David has been repeatedly missing through injury, and if that is not a sign that his career is waning and not waxing, I donít know what is.

There is a place in the team for David when fit, but a couple of games and it seems he is injured again.

Next season I expect him to be elsewhere , to be honest.

Sad perhaps, but possibly necessary if he struggles again for fitness.

He should be given a lifelong contract. I don't want to contemplate a club without David Gray.

:agree:

The sentimental auld fool in me agrees.

His latest injury was almost "self inflicted" in so far as there was absolutely no need for him to make the tackle he did in the closing seconds of the game. But there again, that's the competitive instinct of the great man.

SDG is the beat of the club. On and off the pitch. If the season progresses like it is there is no danger Lennon will ditch him. If anyone wants a charity (Dnipro) bet against our captain being at the club when our manager is gone i will gladly smash £20 on.

Such a needless tackle to make when we were four goals clear against Hamilton Accies in October. I admire his dedication to still go into the challenge, but it's really cost us.

He made the tackle on the halfway line right in front of me.
It was madness, especially at 4-0.
Could cost him a new contract.
Hope not as he has been top notch this season.

Could certainly do with him back soon especially with fixtures against Celtic, The Rangers x2 & Hearts coming up. Badly miss his leadership on the pitch

What is going on with him? Meant to be back for killie then woke up and didn't feel right so he missed out, not risked against st.mirren so I assume he was out yesterday because of the plastic pitch risk and that he hasn't had a reoccurencd of the injury? We could do with him on Sunday. It's a big game for mavrias to make only his 3rd start in.

Am sure it was reported his muscles tightened up so he was pulled from Killie Squad The Club then said they.needed to get to the bottom of what the issue was So not sure where we are with this. now But no sense in playing him and he. needs to come off And with fixture list coming up he. Weds to be 100 % but yet needs game time to get match fit so it's. Catch 22 situation with him

Last season he played 12 times and we won 7, lost 2 and drew 3.

This season he has played 7 games and we've won 6 and drawn the other one. And he has scored three goals.

The point I'm trying to make is that we are a better team when David Gray plays. The stats seem to back this up.

He was certainly doing it for us start of this season. A big miss.

We played three at the back a lot last term, and had other options. With a back 4 SDG is an important player.
