On loan Reading defender Jeriel Dorsett had to be taken off in the first half during Kilmarnock's 0-5 defeat to Celtic in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday with suspected "ligament damage."

The 20-year-old centre-back made his debut the week before in defeat to Rangers, arriving in Scotland last week.

Trailing by two goals at the time, the 6"1' defender pulled up after hearing 'a pop'.

According to Lochlin Highlet, a local journalist with the Kilmarnock Standard: "Not looking good for Jerrell Dorsett who was subbed off in the first half. He heard a pop, and the initial worry is ligament damage. Derek McInnes says it’s too early to narrow it down, but doesn’t look good for the next few games at least for now."

Previously at Rochdale, the defender won Young Player of the Season at Spotland for the League Two side.

With an injury crisis ravaging through Paul Ince's Royals squad, perhaps it can transcend borders with Dorsett now falling too.

Lucas Joao, Yakou Meite, Sam Hutchinson and Femi Azeez are among those out for Reading currently, with Ovie Ejaria joining them last week.
