Barcelona star Lionel Messi will be missing for three weeks with a thigh strain.

Messi has been ruled out of Barcelona's Champions League trip to Celtic after suffering a thigh injury in Saturday night's 2-0 win over Almeria.

"Leo Messi has a small injury to the biceps femoris (thigh) in his right leg," a Barcelona statement read.

"This was confirmed by medical tests undertaken by the player on Sunday morning at Medical Services Sport City.

"The Argentinian will be out for approximately two to three weeks, which will certainly force him to miss Barcelona's two games this week - on Tuesday against Celtic and next Saturday at the Camp Nou against Valladolid."
