SHAUN Wright-Phillips will miss the remainder of the 2012/13 season owing to an ankle injury.
The midfielder underwent surgery earlier this week on his right ankle and has been ruled out for the rest of the campaign.
“Shaun has had an operation,” said manager Harry Redknapp. “It needed doing, we tried to keep him going.
“He’s played with the pain and not felt 100 per cent. He couldn’t train or play to his maximum. The pain was too much and he will hopefully be back at the start of next season now.
“We had wanted to try and keep him going but he couldn’t carry on. When he has played he has done well but I don’t think he felt he was capable of given his maximum.
“Hopefully he will come back fully fit and ready for next season.”
