Brendan Rodgers has confirmed to the media today that Celtic will be without Daniel Arzani and Eboue Kouassi for the rest of the season after both getting injured in the past week.
Arzani was only 22 minutes into his debut when he went down and had to be stretchered off in Celtic 5-0 win over Dundee.
The player looked lively and fans were happy to see the midfielder make his debut when this happened.

This is a shocker for the Australian star who was just fresh of a World Cup and wanting to make a big impression in the Hoops.
Arzani is likely to return to parent club Manchester City to receive treatment after next weeks scan.
Kouassi had to come off during Celtic’s semi-final win against Hearts after overextending his leg. The midfielder tried to run it off but was subbed in the first half.
In the grand scheme of things, they hadn’t become two mainstays in the side yet but it is a major blow for Celtic’s squad in general.
