Robinson, who has enjoyed 14 appearances for the Gills since arriving in January on a deal until the end of the season, will now undergo a knee operation and faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The news comes as a big blow to Gills boss Martin Allen, who had eyed Robinson as a potential summer transfer target for next season's campaign in League One.

Allen said: "Anton's a fantastic player. He's a great lad on and off the field. He conducts himself superbly well.

"When I found out what it was, he's obviously got to have an operation to repair that. The recovery time is generally between six to nine months. He's a very, very fit lad. He's got a great work ethic so I wouldn't be surprised to see him back in six.

"He's got another year to go on his contract at Huddersfield which, for him, is a big relief of course."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
