Hull City’s sidelined winger Robert Snodgrass has pledged to return stronger than ever in 2015 – but remains unsure if his debut season at the KC Stadium is already over.

Snodgrass has endured a nightmare start to his Tigers career following a £7m move from Norwich this summer, dislocating his left kneecap in the Premier League opener away to Queens Park Rangers.

The freak injury condemned the 27-year-old to between six and nine months out of action and immediately cast doubt over his involvement in the remainder of the 2014-15 campaign.

Seven weeks on from surgery and Snodgrass is determined to maintain a positive outlook. Although he is reluctant to place a date on a potential comeback, the Scot is confident of justifying the club’s outlay with a full recovery in time.

“I’m a day-to-day type of person. I try not to look too far ahead. I’ll do exactly the same with my rehab,” Snodgrass told the Mail.

“You speak to players who have been through long-term injuries and you can relate. The surgeon’s been the same, telling me you’re not alone with this injury.

“Hundreds and thousands of players have had this injury in the past and they’ve come back stronger. That’s my aim.

“It’s up to you how you want to come back. Some lads believe they won’t come back stronger but I think it’s as much to do with the person and how you approach it mentally and physically. That’s the challenge for myself.
