CELTIC defender Carl Starfelt has suffered an injury blow while on international duty.

The Swedish stopper made his first competitive start for his country against Slovenia this evening but was forced off before the break.

Centre-back Starfelt had played into stoppage time before having to be withdrawn with his side one-goal up through an Emil Forsberg penalty.

The 27-year-old was stretchered off the park by medical staff after picking up an injury.

Starfelt reportedly suffered a hamstring issue which forced him off the park.

It'll be a worry for Ange Postecoglou as he makes pre-season plans for after the international break.

Sweden went on to win the match 2-0 with Dejan Kulusevski scoring late on to secure victory.
