Ross Callachan on road to recovering from a fractured fibula.

Three months on from suffering a fractured fibula, Ross Callachan has found his road to recovery nothing but challenging. Ross was unfortunate to suffer such a serious injury but in recent weeks has been on the mend and hopes to be back running next week.

'Its been a difficult period of course. I've never suffered such a serious injury in my career before but my recovery has gone well and I suppose I've not missed as many games as I first thought obviously due to the situation we're all in at this moment. Hopefully, I can get back running next week and I will take things from there'.

Callachan who signed on loan for Dundee in January this year from Scottish Premiership club St Johnstone, had an enjoyable spell in Tayside despite only featuring in three games for James McPake's side. Due to the postponement of the 2019/2020 season, Ross will now return to his parent club in Perthshire to continue his recovery.

A former youth player at Raith Rovers, Ross was offered his first professional contract as a 16-year-old in June 2010. After 129 appearances for the club, he earned a move to Scottish Premiership club Hearts under manager Craig Levein in the summer of 2017. Since then, Callachan made a further move the following year to fellow Premiership side St Johnstone and has made 26 appearances in all competitions.
