Celtic confirmed that Dylan McGeouch was hospitalised after being knocked unconscious during a friendly with Real Madrid on Saturday.
The 19-year-old is believed to have suffered a fractured jaw after colliding with Nuri Sahin when challenging for an aerial ball at the Lincoln Financial Field.
The Scot’s unconscious state was quickly flagged up by players of both sides, resulting in medical staff rushing on to the pitch before taking him off the field wearing a neck brace.
“Dylan McGeouch has been taken to hospital with suspected jaw fracture,” Celtic confirmed on their Twitter account.
Sahin, meanwhile, issued a public apology to the Hoops player via his own Twitter account after the match.
He posted: “@DMcGeouch get well soon my friend, i am so sorry, fingers crossed!”
Real Madrid won the match 2-0.
