The Bhoys are due to face the Dutch giants in their next UEFA Champions League outing on Tuesday.

Boerrigter had been hoping to play a leading role in the contest, having completed a switch from the Amsterdam Arena to Parkhead over the summer.

He has, however, been laid low with an ankle injury and will find himself stuck on the sidelines as a result.

Boerrigter told the Daily Record: "I am sick at having to miss the Ajax game. I would have loved to play in it.

"Unfortunately, a small piece of bone in my ankle is damaged.

"It is a real shame, of all the matches for me to miss it would have to be the one against Ajax."

Celtic manager Neil Lennon added: "Boerrigter will take another week or so, he has a bit of soreness in the (ankle) bone and it can take a considerable period of time to heal properly.

"But we are hoping in a week to 10 days he will be able to join the rest of the players."
