08 Oct 2010 - 14:52:05
Celtic have revealed that Scott Brown will be sidelined until at least the end of November with a broken metatarsal.
The 25-year-old former Hibernian midfielder was forced to withdraw from the Scotland squad earlier this week with the problem.
The Bhoys confirmed in a statement on their official website: "Following scans, it has been found that Scott has suffered a stress reaction in the third metatarsal on his right foot.
"Investigations are ongoing but it is likely that Scott will, unfortunately, be out for a period of six weeks.
"However, this could potentially be longer, though the club will only know after Scott sees a specialist next Tuesday."
