Matthews facing three-month lay-off for Celtic

Celtic FC have been dealt a blow with the news that Adam Matthews will miss the rest of the UEFA Champions League group stage with a suspected broken collarbone.

Celtic FC have been dealt a blow with the news that Adam Matthews will miss the rest of the UEFA Champions League group stage campaign.

The 21-year-old Welsh international dislocated his shoulder and suffered a suspected broken collarbone in Saturday's 2-0 victory over Motherwell FC and will undergo surgery on Wednesday.

The injury is expected to keep him on the sidelines for between ten and 12 weeks and means that Matthews, who can play at right-back or in midfield, will miss the double-header against AFC Ajax and the other remaining Group H games at home to AC Milan and away to FC Barcelona.
