AC Milan superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic is likely to miss his side's clash with Celtic in the Europa League next month.

The Swedish hitman bagged himself a double against Napoli yesterday afternoon before being substituted with a hamstring injury.

According to Sky Italia, Ibrahimovic will be reassessed in 10 days time but will be out of both games against Lille and the Hoops on December 3.

The news will provide Celts with somewhat of a boost despite their poor start to the group stages in the Europa League this season. Milan beat Celts 3-1 at Parkhead in the opener, with Zlatan playing from the start.

Celtic will need all the help they can get on current form, having dropped points away to Hibs last weekend. In terms of their European games, their most recent clash ended in a dismal 4-1 loss to Sparta Prague in Glasgow.

And Neil Lennon's men will have the same opponents to see off before they head to Italy to face a Zlatan-less Milan outfit.
