The Celtic midfielder saw his semi-final in the Scottish Cup before half-time after a fierce clash with Dominic Ball end.

The Aberdeen defender was too late with an air challenge and hit Christie in the face with his forehead.

A second yellow card was shown by referee Craig Thomson. The Dons were later reduced to nine men after Lewis Ferguson had shown a red card for a two-shot failure by Tom Rogic.

In a conversation with BBC Scotland, manager Neil Lennon said: "We saw him at half-time and he was conscious. We think it's either a broken eye socket or a broken cheekbone.

"It was a terrible coincidence, and I do not think there was any consideration. It was a definite second yellow. "
