Hearts are set to miss Kevin Kyle for rest of the season after suffering another injury setback. The Scotland internationalist has been out of action since January and last month has a double hernia operation in the hope of curing a groin injury.
However it looks as though a hip injury, is the root of the problem and the Hearts striker will receive a further injection this week in the hope that it will help him get fit.
Kyle said, “I can’t see any action for myself from now until the end of the season. I can get through a lot of pains, but this one I can’t. It has been a long process of trying to find out what the problem is. Last week I had an injection into my hip and it took away all my pain. I’ll try another injection to see if that can completely cure it.”
However Hearts assistant boss speaking to the Official club website said that the striker was losing his fitness battle, and that Kyle’s chances of returning before the end of the season are slim.
Speaking to Hearts News Brown said, “Kevin is due to have further treatment this week. But the way things are progressing, it is looking less hopeful that he’ll play again this season. I would have to say the chances are slim.”
