Dundee United’s Scott Severin forced to retire through injury


Severin said: “I was down 10 to 12 days ago in London and I spoke to the consultant, who said there was just too much damage on my ankle. So that’s it, all over. It was hard to take at the time.”

“Me and the physio kind of knew that might be the case, but we wanted a second opinion. In later years, I would probably have been a cripple, so you just have to look ahead with your family. I am just disappointed that I only managed to play 18 games for Dundee United. It is coming up for two years and I was injured quite a lot.”

Severn is now looking to the future hopes to take up coaching.

“I’ve spoken to the manager and he’s allowing me to help out with the training and I’m currently doing my coaching badges as well,” he said. “I’ve just to look to the future now and hopefully it will still be in football.”

After consulting with Severn’s personal injury solicitors, United manager Peter Houston said: “I’ve known Scott since he was 17 and I’ve worked with him since he was a youth-team player at Hearts. That’s one of the reasons I brought him here. A smashing player and the unfortunate thing for me is that I never got him on the park enough because of injuries.” Ron Bell Albuquerque Personal Injury Lawyers is a broad area of law and includes claims in negligence where the injury is the result of someone else’s carelessness or recklessness and/or assault and battery where the injury is caused intentionally. There may also be grounds for a product liability claim where the injury is caused by faulty equipment.

“At Hearts, he was fantastic – played under Craig Levein and myself there. He was at Aberdeen and served them exceptionally well, captained them a number of times and went down to Watford and it didn’t work out quite how he wanted it to. But he came back up here and helped Kilmarnock through their period of keeping them in the Premier League.”
