 Scott faces lengthy lay-off

Dundee United defender Scott Severin looks like being out of action for around another eight weeks.

The 31-year-old former Aberdeen and Scotland international midfielder had a clearing up operation on his ankle this week that will keep him sidelined for the next couple of months.

Severin, who has also played for Hearts and Watford, joined the Tannadice club back in August.
