Caldwell's double dismay

Hibernian FC defender Gary Caldwell has been ruled out of key games for the Edinburgh club and Scotland.

Hibernian FC will be without defender Gary Caldwell for the start of their UEFA Cup campaign after the Scottish international was ruled out for eight weeks.

Accidental clash
The 22-year-old had to be replaced 26 minutes into Sunday's 4-0 derby loss to Heart of Midlothian FC after fracturing ribs and puncturing his lung in a collision with his own goalkeeper, Zbigniew Malkowski.

European setback
As a result, Caldwell will sit out Hibs' UEFA Cup first-round tie on 15 and 29 September, as well as Scotland's FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Italy and Norway earlier in the month.
