The former Gretna, Dundee United and St Johnstone player suffered cruciate ligament damage during his side's goalless draw at Motherwell on Saturday after landing awkwardly.

Grainger wrote on his Twitter account: "Had some terrible news today about my injury to say im gutted is an understatment [sic] but unfortunately i will miss the rest of the season.
