Hull City manager Steve Bruce says defender Paul McShane must apologise if he is to be allowed to train again with the first team squad.
McShane, 28, has been frozen out by Bruce since Hull's 1-0 defeat at Burnley on 8 November and forced to train with the development squad. although the reason behind the rift has yet to be revealed by either Bruce or McShane.
"If he apologises to myself and the squad, he will come back into the fold. It's entirely up to Paul," Bruce said. "Paul knows exactly why he's training with the Under-21s squad at the moment."
