Ipswich manager Jim Magilton hailed winger Luciano Civelli as "a revelation" after he was ruled out for the rest of the season by injury.

The 22-year-old joined the club in January and was steadily improving before picking up knee ligament damage against Burnley in midweek.

Magilton said: "It's a big blow for Luca and for us. He is only a young lad who has come here from Argentina and shown a great attitude and work ethic and a lot of guts as well."

He added: "He has been a revelation for us and was improving with every game. He will get the best care available from our medical team and we all wish him a speedy recovery."
