Paul McShane posts photo of his leg after Marouane Fellaini horror tackle

Published Add your comment

Hull City defender Paul McShane has uploaded a gruesome image that shows the result of Marouane Fellaini's horror challenge during the end-of-season encounter against Manchester United last weekend.

The 29-year-old fell victim to a maliciously late tackle by the Belgium international at the KC Stadium on Sunday, which looks to have left him some lasting damage judging by the size of the scar that can be seen just above his left knee.

Fellaini was shown a straight red card having only been on the pitch for 18 minutes after replacing Ashley Young as a second half substitute just after the hour mark, which reduced the Red Devils to ten men for the final 12 minutes.

However, the Tigers were still unable to break Louis van Gaal's side down, and as a result they dropped out of the Premier League after recording a 0-0 draw, succumbing to relegation on the final day.

Newcastle United's 2-0 victory over West Ham at St James' Park meant that Steve Bruce's men would've been condemned to the Championship even if they'd picked up an unlikely win against Manchester United. But, that will do little to lessen the disappointment being felt by everyone connected with Hull City.

McShane is actually out of contract this summer, and BBC Sport confirmed earlier today that the Republic of Ireland international is one of six senior players that have been released by the club as a direct result of them losing their top-flight status.

The centre-back will now be on the lookout for new employers next term once he's made a full recovery from the nasty injury.

Meanwhile, Fellaini will begin the 2015/16 campaign with a three match suspension following his violent conduct charge, which appeared to anger Van Gaal based on his comments in the aftermath of the game.

"It is very stupid. I have said to him," he told BBC Sport. "He will start next season in the tribune. It is not good."
