Big injury blow for Liverpool

Glen Johnson's worst injury fears were confirmed today when scans confirmed he suffered a medial ligament injury to his right knee during the 1-0 win at Aston Villa.

The England defender limped off in the latter stages of the game at Villa Park and assessments by the club's medical team at Melwood today have revealed the latest blow to the Reds' £18m summer signing, who has already missed several games this season with hamstring trouble following his arrival from Portsmouth.

A club spokesman said: "A scan today has revealed a tear in the medial ligament in Glen's right knee.

"The player will see a specialist tomorrow, after which we should be able to more accurately determine the length of his rehabilitation period."
