Socceroo midfielder Vince Grella has been ruled out of the remainder of English club Blackburn's season.

Manager Steve Kean says Grella has undergone an Achilles operation.

The Australian has played just seven times in the current campaign, just twice since October 24 and not since February 26.

"It has been hard for Vinny because he's picked up niggly injuries and this one has been quite a big operation on his Achilles," Kean said.

"He has had the plantaris removed and hopefully he can get some rehab under his belt and look forward to an injury-free season next season.

"I think he won't play again this season."
