ROSS OUT TILL THE SUMMER AFTER OP
ROSS McCormack’s season has come to an end, compounding what the Nottingham Forest loanee has labelled a freakish couple of weeks.
The striker has had five cysts removed from his jaw after a three-hour operation. It put paid to any more time on the park.
McCormack had impressed at the City Ground, having come on loan from Aston Villa after falling out of favour with Steve Bruce.
And in what has already been a strange season for the 30-year-old, this latest blow will not lift his mood after signing from Fulham in the summer.
“It’s been a freakish couple of weeks in what has been an abnormal season for me,” he said.
“Forest have been good with me.
“I wanted to help them, but the doctors have advised that I avoid contact in training and rest up.
“I am not used to seasons where I don’t play a lot of games and don’t get my goals. I desperately want to get back to that.
“The move to Villa did not start as planned, but hopefully I can get myself sorted and come back in the summer nice and fresh.”
