Hamstrung Ajax left-back Nicolai Boilesen has been ruled out for the rest of the season and the Denmark defender is also a serious doubt for Euro 2012.

It is the third time Boilesen, 20, has pulled his right hamstring since an initial injury against PSV Eindhoven in September.

The former Brondby player made his return after five months out in the UEFA Europa League round of 16 first-leg defeat by Manchester United but has not featured since.

Boilesen, twice capped by his country, was expected to be part of the Denmark squad to travel to Poland and Ukraine for the European Championship, where the Danes will play Group B rivals Germany, the Netherlands and Portugal.
