Madrid: Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano will miss his side's Champions League trip to Celtic next week due to a hamstring injury.

The Argentine international limped off after just 35 minutes of Barca's 4-1 win over Real Sociedad on Tuesday night and tests carried out on Wednesday confirmed that he will be out for up to two weeks.

"Tests realised this morning have confirmed that the hamstring strain will force him out for 10 to 15 days," said a statement on Barca's website.
