Middlesbrough were promoted to the Premier League on Saturday following their 1-1 draw with Brighton, but the club’s afternoon was soured a little by Gaston Ramirez’s awful leg injury.

The Uruguay international was stretched off the pitch following the challenge by Dale Stephens, who was shown a straight red card by experienced referee Mike Dean.

Ramirez instantly knew he’d suffered a bad one, but required oxygen after pulling down his sock to reveal the full extent of the damage. (Scroll down this page to watch the video).

Fortunately for Middlesbrough, they have now secured automatic promotion to the top flight and won’t be requiring Ramirez’s services again this season.

The 25-year-old is currently on loan at the Riverside Stadium from Southampton, who are expected to offload the South American on a permanent transfer if they can find a buyer this summer.
