Celtic midfielder Shunsuke Nakamura has broken a bone in his left hand after playing in Sunday's 2-1 win at Inverness in the Tennent's Scottish Cup quarter-finals.

The Japan international playmaker suffered the injury in guiding the Hoops to cup success over Inverness Caledonian Thistle, but is not considered serious.

The SPL leaders take on Dunfermline on Saturday before travelling to Italy for the second leg of their Champions League clash with AC Milan on 7 March and Nakamura should be fit to play.

'Hopefully he will not miss any games,' a club official said. 'We will know the full extent of the injury later in the week.'
