Raith Rovers defender David McKay has had surgery to fix his damaged anterior cruciate ligament.
The 22-year-old was injured during training at the end of February and will miss the whole of the 2020/21 season.
Rovers did not initially realise the severity of the problem but McKay has now had the operation.
The Stark’s Park club wished him well, saying: “Defender Dave McKay has (had) surgery today on his injured ACL – we wish him the best of luck and a speedy post-op recovery.
“The rehabilitation will be hard work but everyone at the club is behind David and looking forward to seeing him in action again.”
