Confirmed - Rose Out For Weeks!

Martin O'Neill has confirmed defender Danny Rose is set to be out for "several weeks", rather than the two weeks expected.

Martin O'Neill: "Danny's likely to be a few more weeks.

"I think it's less severe than the previous hamstring problem but, because he's on loan, Tottenham Hotspur get involved as well and they want to assess him.

"That's quite right - he's their player and they like to see what's happening.

"He'll come back to us on Monday. It's one of the drawbacks to having loan players.

"The parent club feel as if they have got a call for him. I can't disagree with that."
