THIS is the shocking moment St Mirren’s Women’s captain has to hammer her knee cap back into place after dislocating it.
Saints star Jane O’Toole sustained the horror injury against Inverness on Sunday, February 16.
However, she amazingly continued to play the remainder of the match after clicking it back in.
The footage was posted by the official Inverness Caley Thistle Youtube channel.
A warning that some viewers may find the vid distressing.
O’Toole rolled over on the ground after a 50/50 challenge with one of the Inverness players near the touchline.
As she goes to get back on her feet, her knee cap visibly pops out of its socket.
Incredibly, the skipper started to thump it with real vigour with his fist as she tried to get it back into place.
After seemingly managing to hammer it back in, the Buddies ace lay on the artificial surface in pain as her team-mates consoled her.
A St Mirren Womens spokesperson said: “Our captain is made of tough stuff.
“Just look at how she dealt with dislocating her knee during our recent game at Inverness.
“You can’t put a good woman down – she got back up and played the full 90 minutes.”
And their opponents Caley Thistle were also quick to praise O’Toole.
They posted on social media: “Big respect to Jane O’Toole who continued playing after suffering a dislocated knee cap.
“She proceeded to hammer the knee cap back into place and then returned to the field of play to lead her team through till full time.”
The Champions League Cup tie finished 7-0 to Inverness in the Highlands.
Meanwhile, St Mirren’s clash against Hearts in the Scottish Premiership tonight has been called off.
The decision to postpone the match came after a pitch inspection at The Simple Digital Arena at 3.30pm.
Paisley has been battered by rain all throughout today leading to the call off of the match which was scheduled to be shown on BT Sport.
The SPFL confirmed that the game has been postponed because of a waterlogged pitch.
Referee Alan Muir was in Paisley this afternoon to inspect the surface but decided it was unplayable.
Saints were hoping to continue their form after they sneaked into the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup with a penalty shoot-out win over Motherwell after a 4-4 draw.
