This afternoon Ange Postecoglou and Celtic fans were handed a massive boost with the return of winger Jota to training at Lennoxtown.

The 22-year old has been missing from action since picking up an injury in early December as the Hoops ran out 1-0 winners against Hearts at Parkhead.

Speaking to the media, Postecoglou provided an update to supporters as to when Jota may return to action on the field as he continues his recovery from injury, stating that it won’t be too long before we see the winger back on the pitch.

“It’s good to have him back. It’s one of those ones where he was out medium to long-term, but he’s rehabbed really well and joined in full training today,” he said to Celtic TV.

“We’ll see. He won’t be far off. If it’s not Monday, then we expect him over the next couple of weeks to be available. Like I said, he’s rehabbed really well, and he feels pretty good.”

With the impact that the Benfica loanee has had over the past few months, it is a huge boost to see him so close to a return to action.

Although it may not come in the closest possible game, with Celtic’s fixture against Hibernian on Monday, Postecoglou sounds optimistic that it won’t be too long before Jota is back in the Green and White Hoops.

The squad continues to get stronger, with players such as Kyogo and David Turnbull still to return from their injury issues.
