Deeping Rangers’ Scott Bogusz has been given the all-clear after a worrying injury scare on Tuesday night.

The versatile midfielder fell heavily after 60 minutes of Deeping’s UCL Premier Division derby at Boston Town – and the game had to be abandoned amid concerns he may have broken his neck.

Thankfully, Bogusz was released from hospital on Wednesday morning after X-Rays determined he’d not suffered any serious damage.

Rangers manager Tuncay Korkmaz admitted the incident shook everyone at the club up a little. He said: “When something like that happens, the football becomes irrelevant.

“Thankfully, Scott is OK – but it didn’t look good when he hit the floor.

“When you see somebody motionless on the floor, human nature kicks in and you fear the worst.”

Deeping were drawing 1-1 when the game was abandoned at Tattershall Road, with Ryan Oliver (54) cancelling out an early Town goal.

The game will be rescheduled for a later date – and as Rangers are without a game on Saturday, their next match is a top-of-the-table duel with Spalding United on Boxing Day (3pm).
