Killie hit by Buijs injury

Kilmarnock midfielder Danny Buijs could be out until the new year after pulling his hamstring against Rangers.

The former Feyenoord and ADO Den Haag player limped off early in Sunday's victory over Rangers and faces his second six-week lay-off of the season with a hamstring problem.

Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels said in the Scottish Daily Express: "Danny Buijs is an important player for us but is going to be out for between four to six weeks.

"He's suffered a hamstring pull and it's a blow to lose him because he's been doing well for us in midfield since he came back from injury."
