Robbie Keane will miss the start of the season after a scan confirmed he suffered ankle ligament damage following a challenge in the friendly against Rangers on Wednesday.
In what is a big blow to Head Coach Jacques Santini, the Republic of Ireland international is possibly going to be missing from first team duty for four to six weeks.
Naturally disappointed, Robbie voiced his disappointment at Spurs Lodge this morning.
"It will be very frustrating to miss the pre-season games and the start of the season," said the striker. "You go through pre-season to get your fitness up and get ready for the start of the season then something like this happens.
"It sets you back a bit, but I will keep myself ticking over and strong. Hopefully I will be back in not too long a time.
"I am usually a quick healer, so please, I will be back sooner than we expect."
