Majstorovic looking forward to Celtic return

Daniel Majstorovic is hoping to return to action very soon for Celtic.

The Swedish defender suffered an horrific face injury in a clash with St Johnstone's David Robertson just before Christmas but he believes it hasn't been too bad as he has been able to continue training which hasn't hindered his fitness too much.

"I broke my cheekbone, a piece of my jaw and had a fractured eye socket," he said.

"They operated on me and put metal plates in the left side of my face and I will keep them in.

"That's why I do not need a mask when I play.

"But to be honest it was a good injury for me as I've been able to keep training along the way.

"It was only the first week that I had to take it calmly. It feels nice to be able to keep going and I feel stronger than ever.

"If it was a muscle tear, you would be out for six to eight weeks and cannot do anything. "I was cautious in my first day back training, but I am fine now.

"The first three or four weeks are most critical, but after that everything should be healed. I'm ready to play this week."
