Paul Warne discusses Lee Camp's injury with www.themillers.co.uk...Rotherham United interim boss Paul Warne has confirmed that goalkeeper Lee Camp is likely to miss the remainder of the 2016/17 season, after further investigation of an injury sustained in the game against Leeds United in November.
The Millers’ caretaker says the Derby-born stopper’s injury will see him sidelined until at least April, but after some initial optimism on the recovery front, is now preparing for Camp to undergo an operation.
“He's seen a couple of specialists and unfortunately for Lee and for the team, he's going under the knife next week and that is his season over,” Warney told www.themillers.co.uk.
“Obviously the injury happened against Leeds and when we initially scanned him a few days after the injury there was no ligament or cartilage damage.
“We thought he would be getting back on the grass a lot sooner than he was. Every few days he'd try and go on the grass but was in too much pain, so then he was re-scanned.”
Warne continued to explain that he is unsure on a definitive return date for the 32-year-old but insists he will receive the best possible care with the Millers, where he is held in high regard.
“I'm not 100% sure but I think it could be anything between four and six months. He'll get great duty of care from everyone is here because we think the world of him.
“He'll be under Mike's [Preston] supervision and he knows what he's doing so he'll get his attention."
