Frustration for keeper

Frustration for keeper

Goalkeeper Shay Given will be frustrated to leave Middlesbrough at the end of the month.

The veteran Republic of Ireland international is due to return to parent club Aston Villa on 28th February after they previously refused to extend his loan until the end of the season.

"It's gone really well while I have been here and I've really enjoyed playing again," Given told the Northern Echo. "There will probably be a feeling of unfinished business because we have been in a good moment.

"I do feel we have an outside chance of still getting in the play-offs if we can get some goals and clean sheets. It will be a shame I can't be more involved in that," he added. "I have enjoyed the buzz again of making saves and being in and around the team. It's been nice to be playing again and I want to keep playing."
