Freed Madine to have talks with Gray

Gary Madine was released from prison today and Stuart Gray says he will be sitting down with the disgraced striker next week to discuss his possible future at Hillsborough.

Madine, 23, was jailed for 18 months after he was found guilty of knocking two men unconscious in separate nightclub attacks in Sheffield and Gray revealed he had visited Madine in jail before his release.

Gray said today: “”He is very remorseful and keen to get back playing and we will have discussions with him next week.”

Madine said on Twitter: “Thanks for all the nice messages, I’m sorry for letting so many people down. Can’t wait to get back training, feel stronger than ever!!”
