With Rangers confirming yesterday afternoon that Jamie Murphy’s season was now over following the injury he picked up in the game against Kilmarnock, fans were quick to react to that news.

Having joined us last January from Brighton and Hove Albion on a loan spell, that turned permanent over the summer with both clubs already agreeing a fee for his future services and he penned a fresh three year deal with us.

He already has 26 appearances to his name in our shirt, returning six goals and seven of those appearances have come this season. He was stretchered off in the 17th minute of the Scottish League Cup tie against Kilmarnock though having fallen foul of their artificial pitch and it didn’t look good.

Unfortunately, the news was the worst possible for the player as manager Steven Gerrard confirmed he has suffered an anterior Cruciate Ligament issue and the 29-year-old will miss the remainder of this season.

Gerrard’s full words are available by Clicking Here.

Sadly these injuries aren’t rare in the game, but that does mean his rehabilitation work will be carefully laid out as people more than know what they are doing with treatment, he just has to keep his spirits up in the meantime and I’m sure he will.
