Doubtful. He has a very serious and debilitating injury...

He’s been released by St.Mirren because they’re not paying for him to have surgery. We’d be out of our mind to go anywhere near.

Surely he would be covered by St Mirren's insurance.

Tansey himself has said his position at club was untenable when it became clear he would need to pay for his own operation. What sort of clubs hangs a player out like that?

Did Ross McArthur not say last season that the premiums for insuring players for surgery arising from injury are so high as to make such insurance unaffordable, certainly for a club in our position?

Most clubs can't afford insurance and they just pay as needed.
Cost us a lot last season.

Football is effectively self employment. Like any self employed person they should probably carry insurance of some sort. Its the nature of any job these days sadly.

I think the Pars paid a heavy price last season with the level of injuries at the club. You are probably running the risk of this sort of cost when you employ older more experienced players or tgose who are prone to injury. The number of games played each season doesnt help.

His was a pre-existing condition before he joined them so would insurance even have covered it?

Tansey was apparently training on his own,against doctor's orders, which aggravated the injury. This meant he wasn't covered. His own fault.
