Hull City goalkeeper Allan McGregor still in hospital with kidney damage

Hull City manager Steve Bruce says that goalkeeper Allan McGregor remains in hospital more than a week after damaging his kidney against West Ham United.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce has revealed that goalkeeper Allan McGregor is still in hospital undergoing treatment on a kidney problem.

The 32-year-old has spent more than a week in hospital after he was injured in a collision with Mohamed Diame in last Wednesday's 2-1 defeat to West Ham United.

"Allan is still in hospital to this day," Bruce said in Friday's press conference. "We're hoping that he'll be out tomorrow. He's out of the high dependency unit and things have gone as well as they could have for him in the circumstances, but it shows you what type of injury it is with him still being in hospital 10 days later.

"We obviously wish him a speedy recovery. The doctors say that he's going to be out for six weeks and I'm sure he'll be doing everything he possibly can to get himself back."

McGregor was sent off for the incident, but later had the red card rescinded by the Football Association.
