Kris Commons is almost certainly out of Celtic FC's UEFA Champions League game against AFC Ajax on Tuesday after the midfielder pulled up with a hamstring strain in the weekend 1-1 draw at Hibernian FC.
"Kris knew straight away; he felt a pull and signalled to us," said manager Neil Lennon. "We don't think it's a tear, but if it is a strain it's a couple of weeks, so it's definitely not looking good for Tuesday. Losing Kris is a huge blow. He has been fantastic for us this season. He's at the top of his game and in great physical condition, so if he is out it will be a big loss."
Lennon is already without suspended captain Scott Brown, Adam Matthews (shoulder) and former Ajax winger Derk Boerrigter (ankle). Mikael Lustig is also a doubt with a hip injury, while Emilio Izaguirre returned from international duty with a virus.
The Hoops currently sit bottom of Group H having failed to take any points from their first two fixtures against AC Milan and FC Barcelona.
