David McCracken: Says contract offer was withdrawn by St Johnstone

The centre-back felt confident that he would be staying at the club and putting pen to paper on a new 12-month contract, but his future has now been plunged into doubt.

McCracken believes the offer was withdrawn because he needed a cartilage operation, but he insists he will be fit for the start of the new season.

"Saints offered me a new deal and we spoke about it. I was ready to sign on but everything seemed to change when I needed surgery," he said in the Sunday Mail.

"I was under the impression we had everything agreed when all of a sudden the contract wasn't there.

"There was a bit of confusion caused by the change of manager when Steve Lomas left and Tommy Wright stepped up but the chairman, Steve Brown, told me the problems at Hearts were a factor.

"I won't be getting offered anything now. They've done a U-turn.

"I know I'll be ready to play at the start of the season so hopefully I'll get something sorted quickly."

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.
