Celtic Midfielder Knocked Out Cold Vs. Real Madrid
Glasgow Celtic midfielder Dylan McGeouch was knocked unconscious after clashing heads with Real Madrid's Nuri Sahin during the Herbalife World Football Challenge on Saturday at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field. The 19-year-old suffered a broken jaw, but thankfully avoided any head or neck injuries.
Here's more on McGeouch's status, from BBC:
“He is travelling back with us which is great news,” manager Neil Lennon told the club website.
“He needs a plate inserted in his jaw and I think he may made need an extraction of a tooth which has been damaged.
“Thankfully there are no neck or head injuries. It was very similar to the injury Henrik [Larsson] had when he broke his jaw against Livingston that day. So we might be looking at four to six weeks.
