Scotland winger Robert Snodgrass admits he is over the moon at making his first competitive Hull City appearance in over 15 months.
The 28-year-old came off the bench for the final 17 minutes in Tuesday’s 4-1 Capital One Cup defeat at Manchester City.
Snodgrass had been sidelined since August 2014 after dislocating his knee cap on his league debut for the Tigers against Queens Park Rangers.
Despite the result at the Etihad, the £7 million recruit insists he is thrilled to be back involved.
The former Livingston and Norwich City playmaker tweeted: “15 months I waited for that, gutted about result but thank you to my team mates, staff and the Hull City fans for that great reception.”
Hull manager Steve Bruce is delighted to have Snodgrass available to bolster their aim of bouncing straight back to the Premier League.
He said: “The reason we’re in the Championship is that we lost players like Snodgrass.
“He’s been missing for nearly 16 months and let’s hope he stays injury free. It was a fantastic moment for him and we’re delighted.
“Let’s hope he can stay fit and resemble the good player that he is. There’s no question he’ll be a huge addition to us.”
