Isaac Osbourne: Scans have revealed that he has torn his hamstring

The unlucky Englishman is likely to be out for at least six weeks, having only returned in January from a near two-month lay-off caused by a hamstring problem.

A statement on the Aberdeen website on Tuesday read: "Scan results have unfortunately shown that Isaac Osborne has sustained a tear in his hamstring.

"The management and medical team at Pittodrie are hopeful Isaac will be fit to make a return after the league split but would rather not put a time-frame on his recovery, to limit any pressure on the player."

Dons boss Craig Brown said: "To lose Isaac again is a huge disappointment for the squad.

"Having just returned to the team in recent weeks, he had made a positive impact on our performances and he will be sadly missed.

"Isaac is a consummate professional and he will work extremely hard to ensure his rehabilitation from this injury is swift."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
