Garry O’Connor in dark over Birmingham City future


Striker Garry O'Connor does not know whether he has a future with Birmingham City beyond January.

The Scotland striker was handed a six-month contract during the summer following an injury-plagued last season.

The 27-year-old started Saturday's 2-0 home victory over Blackpool after steadily climbing the pecking order in recent weeks but his long-term future remains a mystery.

"Nothing is being said at the moment about a new contract," he explained.

"The gaffer has got faith in me. It is just about people upstairs at the club.

"I would love to stay at Birmingham. It's a fantastic club and I've enjoyed my time here and hope it can continue.

"I've got to keep my head down and keep working hard.

"But, if it doesn't happen for me here, I can move on being happy with my form at the moment."
