AN X-RAY shows how goalkeeper Mark Ridgers played through the pain barrier during Inverness Caledonian Thistle's Scottish Cup semi final against Hearts.

The 28-year-old suffered a dislocated finger during the 3-0 defeat at Hampden Park on Saturday.

His wife Emma Ridgers shared an x-ray of the injury he sustained from the encounter on Twitter.

She wrote: "To think @MarkRidgers played for 45mins with a badly dislocated finger...hats off to you hubs."

Despite the injury, Ridgers still pulled off a number of saves against the Premiership outfit at the national stadium.

Ridgers wrote on his Twitter account that despite his injury he is hoping to make a comeback between the sticks soon.

He wrote: "Tough one on Saturday not the result we were after, hopefully now get that play off spot and push for promotion.

"Fingers crossed won’t be out too long."
