Adam Matthews: Sustained a serious injury in Celtic's win over Motherwell

The 21-year-old suffered a suspected broken collarbone in Saturday's 2-0 win over Motherwell, following a challenge from Keith Lasley.

Celtic confirmed on the club's official website that the Wales international will have a consultation on the problem.

"Adam Matthews will see a specialist on Monday," a Celtic statement read.

"However, there is the possibility of surgery and Adam could be out for a couple of months."

If Matthews does miss the next two months, it would mean he will not be involved for the remainder of Celtic's Champions League Group H campaign.

The full-back, who has also been deployed in a midfield role this season, will definitely miss his country's two remaining Group A World Cup qualifiers, against Macedonia on Friday and Belgium the following Tuesday.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
