    If he can stay fit, I think Ange will work wonders with him.

    We need to really take our time with him now I think and be careful not to rush him back. Last thing we want is for him to get injured, when he’s back fir to play I think he should be subbed on 15-20 mins max for 5-6 games before introducing him for 30 mins+. Mikey is very quick and he has a relentless style of play with pressing even off the ball so we need to look after his fitness correctly and build him up. Less minutes as an impact sub could still be crucial for us in certain games and hopefully it will lessen his chances of getting injured again.

    Feel for him, all the build up and potential and its constant injuries for him, fingers crossed he soon gets a run of games and gets away from his issues? Have a wee feeling he might never get rid of them

    Kind of given up on this one! Said it many times before in here, but he really needs to bulk up & not taking the time out when were in lockdown to do that was disappointing.. Klimala came back a tank! KT Bulked up big time and it took him to new levels too.. Wingers can sometimes get away with it but he just gets knocked off the ball or picks up an injury over * all.

    He's to fragile to be a footballer he will continue to get injuries untill he eventually has to retire from them, is a shame as he is a cracking player on his day

    Really hope he can turn a corner in his career and kick on. But I can't see it, he seems to be made chocolate.

    People forget as well that Duff rated Johnston highest for potential, so much ability just needs a bit of luck with injuries.

    Totally agree. He has to stay fit but if he could I think we would have a player who could take the league by storm like Maloney did when he was at his best with us.
    What is the latest on when he is expected back?

    Honestly, been stung so many times, I want the lad just to get fit and be properly ready.
    If the club reckon he could be on the bench on Sunday, I would argue we should give the lad another 2 weeks rest.

    Lads been brought back too early too many times.

    We need good medical staff, who can make good assessment. I hope he could play 20 minutes, but if he can't, then it'll just be another setback. Then again, physical activity is key in recovering from an injury. The Livingston pitch won't help.

    Wouldn't be putting him anywhere near that pitch, but fantastic news he's fit again.
