The difference is, it’s not like he’s unfit to “hit the standards” because he’s sitting on a couch eating crisps and taking the piss.

He’s injured, an injury he picked up playing for us.

If we apply the “real world” logic to injuries, we’ll have Digby Brown chapping the door soon enough.

I never suggested we sack him. Simply not renew his contract. Would be some employment lawyer to find a case with that action.

Regarding his actual wages, do professional clubs have insurance in the event a player gets injured the insurance company pays his wages? I would've thought so but not sure.

They certainly used to. I don't know if that's still the case these days, but I'm sure if it's an affordable option most clubs will protect themselves that way.

In the Daily Record today he's out for the season. Grim stuff. Will he ever play again for us.

To be fair for thats left of the season i wouldnt rush him back. Maybe the aim is to get him fit and a full pre season under his belt and back for next season.

Aye "out for the rest of the season" is a bit of a dramatic headline seeing as there's only a couple of months left.

 

Hope we see him back fit and ready to go next season.

On a semi-related note, I hope Dundee don't get relegated. Those 9-12 points (depending on respective post-split positions) are even more nailed on for us next season if Tanner's back.

It wasn't that long ago we were single-handedly responsible for keeping them in the league with the amount of points we donated to them. Nice that they have returned the favour.
