Russell Anderson Back In Training

Russell Anderson picked up a cruciate injury against Fulham back in September and has been sidelined ever since. Anderson was signed on a season-long loan from Sunderland and despite the horrendous injury has kept in contact with the Clarets.

The good news now is that he trained with the lads on Thursday this week.

Owen Coyle has made no secret of how highly he rates the 30 year old Scottish International and has intimated a number of times that he would like to sign him on a permanent basis if Sunderland agree to release him in the Summer.

Coyle revealed:

'It would be great to have Russell available. He'll join in with the boys as well, and another couple of weeks and maybe he'll get some sort of a game; three weeks minimum I would think, but we'll have a look at it and see how it goes.It's great he's coming back, but as much as people are talking about play-offs, I'm not.I'm just talking about Russell in general and we'd love to see him fit for his own well-being before the end of the season.'

I cant see him playing before the end of the season but you never know if we reach the play-offs final. Could be a strong candidate though for a permanent signing for next season

Glad he is now recovered, and training, forgot all about him to be honest with being out for so long. If I can think so far back I think he was impressive. However do correct me if I am wrong I have watched a lot of games since and killed a few brain cells with a few drinks!!
