Celtic announced on Friday that the Scotland midfielder would be out for at least six weeks, and possibly more, with a stress reaction in a metatarsal on his right foot.

A visit to a specialist has today allayed fears he would need surgery, which would have kept him out for about three months.

But a statement on www.celticfc.net added: "However, with the extra rehabilitation work required, the midfielder is likely to be out for eight to 10 weeks."
