After a solid start to his Celtic loan spell, Filip Benkovic got injured today during the Celtic pre-match warm up. Benkovic will be replaced by the returning Jack Hendry.
This not confirmed as of yet but we’ve just had several texts on our social media. We only bragged this morning how the Celtic defence had turned things around after a horrible transfer window. But the jinx looks to continue. It is unsure how bad the injury is but with so many changes already made at Rugby Park Celtic fans will be hoping Hendry can settle into the team.
Ajer was the latest defender to be struck down with illness last week. Brendan Rodgers has made several changes from his Europe League win at Celtic Park on Thursday. Celtic have a chance to cut league leaders Hearts lead after they could only manage a 0-0 draw yesterday at Tynecastle against Livi.
