Newcastle United fans have been reacting to an image that has emerged of Ryan Fraser whilst away on international duty.
The 27-year-old has had something of a bad time at Newcastle ever since he joined them in the summer of 2020, picking up just one goal during his 26 appearances at the club during a time that has also been hampered by injuries.
And it appears as though those injury problems could be about to repeat themselves. Ahead of their clash with Austria, Scotland manager Steve Clarke revealed this afternoon that he had withdrawn from the squad with an injury problem, however, didn’t go into much detail on it and described it as ‘a knock’.
Despite this, a photo has emerged from TalkSport that shows Fraser leaving the team hotel on crutches and with his foot in a boot.
It’s never a good sign to see a player in something like that, and it led to a number of rather angry Newcastle fans when they saw it, with many of them seeming to focus their anger on the club for their lack of business in the transfer window, which could leave them rather short of players moving forward:
Has Fraser been a good signing for Newcastle?
Hopefully the boot is just a precaution rather than an indicator of anything more serious, or it could really leave Toon boss Steve Bruce with selection problems in the weeks to come.
