Steve Bruce rules out Newcastle United player for rest of season
Ciaran Clark is almost certainly out for rest of the season, according to Steve Bruce.
Clark has been sidelined since February with an ankle injury which needed surgery.
The defender has “got a complication”, and head coach Bruce doubts that he’ll play again this season.
"I doubt he'll play again this season,” Bruce told BBC Radio Newcastle. He had an ankle operation, and, unfortunately, he's got a complication in that area. He's not comfortable."
Meanwhile, Florian Lejeune could be back in training next week.
