Hibernian keeper Graham Stack is expected to be sidelined for the rest of the Scottish season.

The 29-year old will this week have an operation on the shoulder he injured in the Edinburgh club's 2-1 win over Hamilton Academical on March 1 and is unlikely to return this campaign.

Stack had already missed most of the season with a troublesome back problem but now has this to contend with as manager Colin Calderwood confirmed the injury to the Herald Scotland.

"We will have to wait until after the operation for a full outcome, but it is obviously a nasty injury and one that will take a while to recover from, I would think," he said.
