Sweden and Celtic defender Mikael Lustig has revealed he may need surgery on his hip after Euro 2012.

The right-back moved to Scotland in January on a free transfer from Rosenborg but he was limited to just a handful of appearances due to injury.

Now Lustig, 25, has revealed that he could need to go under the knife after playing through the pain-barrier for Sweden in Ukraine and Poland.

He came off the bench to feature in the defeat to England last week and said: "It went better than expected but I was stiff afterwards.

"I have had problems with this hip for a while. Now I'll have to see if it needs an operation after the Euros."
