'Keeper Gordon eyes playing return

Former Sunderland goalkeeper Craig Gordon hopes he may soon be ready to return to football after playing only one game in two years because of a tendon problem.

It had been feared that 30-year-old Gordon, who became British football's most expensive goalkeeper when he completed a £9 million move to the Black Cats from Hearts in 2007, may have had to retire because of the patella tendon injury.

He briefly joined the coaching staff at Dumbarton, but has now left as he concentrates on a return to playing.

"I'm going to focus on myself, take care of my knee and look after that the best I can," he told the Daily Record.

"Coaching can wait - I'm only 30. It's not as if I need to be diving into it now. I may look to go into a club some time next season, but only if I feel it's going to be of benefit and only when I'm ready.

"At some point, the sharpness and the quickness of movement will have to come into it and you can't do that stuff by yourself, so I'll have to commit to that if I want to get back to any kind of level.

"That won't happen overnight. It will take weeks, maybe months, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

"I've had calls to see if I'm available for next season, but until I know what state I'm in I don't want to go and let anybody down. I'd rather wait and make sure I could contribute.

"If I manage to get back I want to play football. That's all I'd be interested in."

Gordon left Wearside on a free transfer when he was released after an injury-plagued spell and said he had since tried a variety of treatments for his injury.

"I've chucked every treatment at it, gone down every possible route I could have gone down," he explained. "There are a few injections left to try, which I will over the next few months."
