Dundee United striker Johnny Russell has revealed that he will miss the remainder of the season with a broken leg.

The 22-year-old picked up the injury during last week's 0-0 draw with Inverness, although it has turned out to be more serious than first feared.

"Absolutely gutted got an x-ray this morning on my injury and I have fractured my fibula," he tweeted.

Russell has scored 13 goals in 28 league games for the Scottish club this season.
