Paddy McCourt fit for Tannadice trip


Paddy McCourt

Paddy McCourt will resume full training tomorrow and is looking to return to top team action against Dundee United on Sunday.

Two trademark solo goals against Inverness Caley Thistle and Hearts earned the Derryman a starting place away to Kilmarnock on September 19 but his involvement was cut short by a 20th minute shoulder injury.

Fears of a dislocated shoulder were wide of the mark with the fan’s favourite explaining the injury earlier today.

He told Channel 67: “My shoulder popped out, it’s actually called sublux, a partial dislocation, it didn’t come completely out. It came out so far then went back in.

“Because it’s been a shoulder injury I’ve been able to do a lot of hard training to keep my fitness up so it hasn’t been too bad.

“There was a lot of soft tissue damage around the area and that’s why I’ve been out for three weeks but I’m raring to go now

“I was disappointed by the nature of the injury but it’s one of those things that you have to take on the chin, I’m back now and looking forward to Tannadice which will be our biggest domestic test so far this season.

“It’s important for us to get a win with the Old Firm game coming the week after- we want to go into that with a 100% record

“I hope to be involved. I’m due to start full training this week, hopefully the manager will have me in the squad and that I can contribute to the team.”
