McAleer has surgery on injured ankle

CAOLAN McAleer is hoping to return to action around Christmas following surgery on an injured ankle.

The Dungannon Swifts attacker went under the knife on Tuesday to repair a ligament tear and chipped bone.

The Omagh man picked up the injury in a Danske Bank Premiership game against Cliftonville back in February and it continued to prove troublesome during the early weeks of pre-season.

Following a number of scans it was discovered that the former professional had a six centimetre ligament tear and a chipped bone meaning surgery was required.

The operation had initially been penciled in for November 3 but much to McAleer’s delight was brought forward to Tuesday past.
