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.

Rodgers: No defence coach

T

hat's it for me, that's ego talking and nothing more. Three seasons in and he still hasn't resolved the issues in defence. This won't end well, he doesn't have the skills needed to sort out the back four and isn't prepared to bring in those who do. This is the worst team I've seen since the late days of Houllier. Brendan...you're fired.
