McGeady suffers season-ending injury

Hibernian winger Aiden McGeady will miss the rest of the season through injury, but it is not yet known if he will require surgery.

The 36-year-old returned in December following almost five months on the sidelines with a knee issue, and now his campaign has been ended prematurely as a result of the hamstring injury that forced him off early in the 2-0 win over Kilmarnock a fortnight ago.

McGeady, who has managed just 14 appearances since arriving at Easter Road last summer, faces between four and six months on the sidelines.

With his contract due to expire at the end of the season, there is now a possibility the former Republic of Ireland international - who admitted in January that he feared his previous injury may force him to retire - may have kicked his last ball for the Hibees.

"Geads will be seeing another specialist shortly and that will determine whether or not he needs surgery," said manager Lee Johnson.

"He will be out for a minimum of four months and potentially six months.

"It's really disappointing for us and really disappointing for him, but it's our job to nurse him back to full fitness."
