Norwich City midfielder, Conor McGrandles suffered a double leg break towards the end of Falkirk’s 1-0 win over Morton on Saturday.
McGrandles broke his leg in a collision with Morton’s Joe McKee with no blame being attached to McKee. Conor now reportedly faces three months in plaster and another three months rehabilitation before he will be able to play again, after successful surgery.
Bairn’s boss Peter Houston told The Falkirk Herald: “Conor is a dedicated young man and he`ll get back, but he`ll need to be patient.
“There are other aspects of his physique he can work on. I`m sure Norwich will build him up further and being at a big club like that he`ll have the best of equipment to get fit again.
I spoke to Alex Neil immediately after the game and both he and Frankie McAvoy have spoken to him.
“He recognises it`s football. It could happen at Norwich, at under-20s, at training. All we want is to help Conor and his family any way we can.’
“If he wants to do upper body work here we`ll lift him and lay him
“The surgeon was so pleased with his work. It`s a clean break.”
This is going to be a devastating blow, both physically and psychologically, for the young man but hopefully he’ll get the support he needs from his family and the two clubs.
All the best Conor.
