Footballer suffers whiplash injury in SPL match

Whiplash is normally associated with car accidents and not football matches, but now and then the beautiful game does leave players suffering from the painful neck injury.

The latest unlucky on-field casualty was 28-year-old Falkirk defender Kenny Milne, who found himself carted off to hospital after sliding off the pitch and colliding with a wall.

The incident happened during Falkirk's recent 1-1 SPL draw away at Aberdeen and 6'2 Milne was treated at the side of the Pittodrie pitch before doctors deemed it safe to move him.

Much to the concern of his team mates and Falkirk's travelling army of fans, he was then rushed to a nearby hospital for further examination. He was X-rayed but no serious personal injuries were found and he was then discharged.

A Falkirk FC director told the club's website: "Doctors confirmed he had a suffered a whiplash injury. But they were satisfied enough with the player's condition to allow him to travel home on the team bus."

Amazingly, Kenny Milne is expected to recover sufficiently from his neck injury to be named in the starting line-up for Saturday's Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier League clash with Gretna.
