Taylor: My season is over

Newcastle defender Steven Taylor has confirmed he will miss the rest of the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Stand-in boss John Carver admitted on Thursday evening that the 28-year-old was likely to sit out the remainder of the campaign following his premature exit from his side's 3-3 Barclays Premier League draw with Burnley.

Taylor himself revealed his worst fears had been confirmed when he used his official personal account on social media website Sportlobster to say: "Gutted to say I'm going to be out for the season.

"I ruptured my Achilles in the last game. Thankfully it wasn't the one I did a few years ago.

"I'll have an operation on it on Wednesday, but won't make it back now for the rest of this season. I know what to do in the rehab from last time and will come back fitter and stronger than before."
