James Keatings has scored one goal for Hibs this season

The 24-year-old had to be helped off the pitch after attempting to block a clearance during Saturday’s 3-1 win at Dunfermline.

Keatings, who left East End Park on crutches, received scan results today which confirmed a partial tear to his medial ligament.

The player tweeted: “Gutted to be ruled out for 6 weeks. There’s never a good time to get injured. Time now to work hard and come back stronger.”
