Ryan Christie will undergo surgery this week after Celtic confirmed the Scotland midfielder suffered 'multiple facial fractures' in his collision with Aberdeen's Dom Ball.
The 24-year-old was poleaxed by the Dons defender following a sickening clash of heads during Sunday's William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final.
Ball was shown a second yellow card by referee Craig Thomson after smashing into his opponent's cheek.
