ANGE POSTECOGLOU has said that Celtic winger Daizen Maeda is “50/50” for Celtic’s Scottish Cup clash at Tynecastle.
The Japanese winger looked to pick up an injury on Wednesday night, colliding with Zander Clark as he scored his goal and Celtic’s leveller.
He was later pictured leaving Parkhead in crutches, with many fans assuming he’d miss the match against the Jambos on Saturday.
The Celtic manager, after the match, said, that it was a knock, but with the short turnaround, the match might come too quick for the player.
Alisson Conroy of Sky Sports has tweeted to confirm that Ange Postecoglou said the winger is a possible doubt for Sunday.

Ange Postecoglou has many options in the wide areas, with fans crying out for Sead Haksabanovic to get a much-deserved start after his contribution from off the bench in the last few matches and his goal on Wednesday.
It’ll be interesting to see what Ange goes with if Maeda isn’t available for the match.
