Robinson: Complications after back operation

Robinson: Complications after back operation

Rovers have revealed the former England international, 33, suffered serious respiratory complications following a back operation last week.

He was kept in hospital over Easter after developing a pulmonary embolism, but has now returned home to recover.

It means Rovers have been dealt a double blow as fellow goalkeeper Jake Kean, 22, sustained torn cartilage in his left knee in Monday's 3-0 defeat by Cardiff.

The player needs an operation and will miss the rest of the season.

Polish keeper Grzegorz Sandomierski, 23, came on to replace Kean for his debut and is now set to be thrust into the npower Championship relegation battle.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
