The 24-year-old suffered the injury towards the end of the FA Cup fifth-round victory over MK Dons and missed the midweek win over Wolves.

A scan confirmed the extent of the damage and he went under the knife on Thursday morning.

Tykes boss David Flitcroft told the club's official website: "It's a massive blow because his form has been incredible.

"I'll sit down with Scott at some point and we'll through his objectives for pre-season."

Golbourne had made 35 appearances for the club this season, scoring once in the 3-2 win at Middlesbrough.

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
