'Need you firing' - These Sheffield United fans react to Oli McBurnie injury news as striker will miss Euros

Oli McBurnie will not play again this season, or for his country at the Euros in the summer.

The Sheffield United striker has revealed he’s broken a metatarsal in his foot and will not be part of Scotland’s squad.

It also means McBurnie will not play in the Blades’ final two games of 2020/21 after a tricky campaign for the 24-year-old.

The Scot has scored just once, while off the pitch he was allegedly captured on video having an altercation recently.

There has been further controversy with his national team too, following a conversation between McBurnie and United teammate John Fleck.

Many Scotland fans have also been unhappy with the forward’s performances for his country.

However, Blades supporters have largely come out and backed McBurnie after this latest injury news.

McBurnie may not be featuring for his national team this summer, but has he also played his last game for the Blades?

The attacker has been linked with a move away from Bramall Lane, with Wolverhampton Wanderers reportedly interested.

Yet despite his struggles in front of goal, there is a feeling McBurnie could impress in the Championship next term.

United will be back in the second tier of English football following their relegation from the Premier League.

The last time McBurnie played in the division in 2018/19 he scored 24 times for Swansea City.

That form led to a £20m (BBC Sport) switch to South Yorkshire. McBurnie top scored for the club last season with six league goals.

The former Swansea man isn’t the only one to have struggled this year. Record signing Rhian Brewster has failed to hit the back of the net even once since his move from Liverpool.
