The 31-year-old midfielder broke down while warming up as a substitute during last week's win at St Mirren and will need surgery on a knee problem.

Wright told the club's website: "Our season has already been marred by freakish, 'non-contact', serious injuries. On a disappointing note, it looks like Gary may need a similar operation to Steven MacLean.

"That will make seven serious injuries to key players throughout the season, but I also feel that it highlights the strength of the squad and the level of achievement gaining top six has been."

MacLean missed four months of the season with a knee injury before making a goalscoring comeback against Motherwell in February.

McDonald has made 27 league appearances this season and is under contract at McDiarmid Park until the end of next season.

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.
