Derk Boerrigter is doubtful for Celtic's Champions League clash with Elfsborg on Wednesday after picking up an ankle injury in their 2-1 win over Ross County.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon has revealed that Derk Boerrigter picked up an ankle injury in today's 2-1 win over Ross County in the Scottish Premiership.

The Dutch winger is now in a race against time to be fit for Wednesday's crucial Champions League qualifying clash against Elfsborg.

"We have a bit of a sweat on for Wednesday night to see how he is," PA quotes Lennon as saying.

"He jarred his ankle. It was a total accident, he clipped Mihael Kovacevic's Achilles and it has twisted.

"You can see what Derk brings to the team, that pace and balance on the left. He looked a real threat in the first half."

The Bhoys take a 1-0 lead into the second leg in Sweden.
