Alan Hutton is counting the days to his return to full training.
The Scottish international full-back is scheduled to join the squad again on Monday after four months on the sidelines with a fracture in his right foot.
"I can see light at the end of the tunnel now," said Alan. "It's been tough, especially missing the start of the season, coming back for four or five games and then being out again.
"You have to try and forget about it and get on with working as hard as you can.
"Instead of looking at how long you are going to be out, take it week by week and try to progress as you go along.
"It's not too bad at the moment because I've been training but what gets to you the most are things like watching the cup final or going to home games and sitting there when you want to be down there contributing. It's not easy just sitting there and not being part of it.
"Hopefully it's all behind me now and I can go on from here and play as big a part as I can for the rest of the season."
