(Reuters) - Norwich City forward Robert Snodgrass has been released from hospital after being knocked out during his side's 4-0 League Cup defeat by Manchester United on Tuesday.

The Scotland international suffered concussion after a clash of heads with United defender Rafael during the second half, and was carried off on a stretcher after lengthy treatment on the pitch.

He was taken to hospital for precautionary reasons before being released.

Manager Chris Hughton said he would be assessed before a decision is made over his fitness for Norwich's clash with Manchester City on Saturday.

Winger Nathan Redmond is also in doubt after coming off with a hip injury.
