Celtic manager Neil Lennon has confirmed that midfielder Beram Kayal will be out of action for six to seven weeks with a foot injury.

The 25-year-old broke a bone in his foot during the Scottish outfit's 3-0 defeat to AC Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Lennon said in a press conference today: "Beram Kayal has broken a bone in his foot so he is going for a CT scan today to see if it requires a screw putting in. He will be out for six or seven weeks with that."

Celtic are preparing for their Scottish Cup fourth-round match against Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday.
