Celtic defender Daniel Majstorovic is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering a fractured cheekbone and eye socket yesterday.

The Swedish international sustained the injury in a clash of heads with St Johnstone’s David Robertson in the Hoops’ 2-0 win at McDiarmid Park and manager Neil Lennon is expecting a lengthy lay-off for the 34-year old who was criticised by Saints boss Steve Lomas for going maliciously into the challenge.

"It was a perfectly good full-blooded challenge from a centre-half who only had eyes for the ball and he ended up worse off for his own bravery,” he said.

"There was nothing wrong with the challenge at all. It looks like a fractured cheekbone and it could be a fractured eye socket as well.

"It is a big blow because he has been immense for us. We will have to wait to see the extent of it but it looked a real sore one."
