Hearts have been handed yet another injury blow with the news that teenage striker Gary Oliver will be out for up to three weeks due to an ankle knock.

Oliver picked up the injury in Saturday’s 2-0 defeat by Inverness, his first competitive start for the club.

The 18-year-old’s absence gives manager Gary Locke a further attacking headache for this weekend’s trip to Celtic. The Hearts boss is already without Ryan Stevenson and Jason Holt, while Jamie Walker is rated 60/40 to make the game after injuring his Achilles.
