Rennes skipper out of hospital
Rennes skipper Damien Da Silva has been released from hospital and is recovering well after being checked over following an injury against Celtic.
Da Silva suffered a late knock in the 1-1 Europa League draw with Celtic on Thursday and club officials decided it was best to send him to hospital to be checked over.
After undergoing several tests late on Thursday, doctors released him and Rennes have confirmed he is now recovering well at home.
Rennes issued a quick update on the situation on their Twitter account, which read: “Our captain’s news is reassuring! After a series of exams, the central defender was able to leave the hospital to spend the night at his home last night.”
Les nouvelles de notre capitaine sont rassurantes ! 🙏😌

Da Silva, who has been with Rennes since summer 2018, has been a regular at the back this season and it’s hoped he will be fully fit and available for this weekend’s Ligue 1 clash with Lille on Saturday, although he will be assessed in the build-up to the game.
Rennes have made a fine start to the season and are second in the table after five games, two points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain.
