Allan McGregor: Hull City goalkeeper out for up to six weeks

Hull City goalkeeper Allan McGregor has been ruled out for up to six weeks with a thigh injury.

The Scotland international, 31, has been an ever-present in the league since joining from Turkish side Besiktas in the summer.

McGregor picked up the injury during Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Everton, although he completed the game.

He will miss Scotland's friendlies against the United States and Norway next month.

"This couldn't have come at a worse time for us," Tigers boss Steve Bruce told the club website. 

"Allan will be a big miss for us because he has played very, very well and we wish him a speedy recovery."
