Norwich signing Steven Whittaker will miss the start of the Premier League season because of an ankle injury during the friendly with Rangers, reports BBC Sport.

"It's certainly going to keep him out for a good few weeks," Canaries boss Chris Hughton told BBC Radio Norfolk.

"The good news is that whenever anybody goes over on an ankle, you're always dreading the fact that it's something that might be a really long-term injury, but it's not to that degree which we're delighted at," he said.

"You only have to pick up the newspapers to see players have picked up injuries in pre-season that will keep them out for a matter of months.

"It's part and parcel of the game, you just hope you can get through a pre-season with minimal injuries and at the moment we're OK."
