Owen said: I haven't had any setbacks. Hopefully I can return this season, but it could be next season,'

But Toon boss Glenn Roeder made it clear that Owen would not be rushed back to action.

He said: 'With someone like Michael Owen, it is best for us not to say `We believe he will be back on this specific date',' he said.

'Because he is a world-renowned footballer, if he does not make that date, then all hell is let loose and he has had a setback.'

So he's all set to relaunch his career with Celtic, then? Should be good seeing him playing alongside Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink ;-)
