Crisis is the perfect word to describe what Celtic are in at the moment regarding injuries.
The Hoops have many first-team players out at the moment, and nothing at the club seems to be positive.
Against Kilmarnock last weekend, the Pole pulled up in the latter stages. This was confirmed by Brendan Rodgers midweek, who said (The Scottish Sun): “He [Nawrocki] pulled up in the last ten seconds of the game against Kilmarnock.”
For such an injury to transpire extremely late on would have been hugely disappointing for Rodgers, although his previous comments make something such as this happening unsurprising.
Near the beginning of the season, the Irishman spoke about the new limits on added time, quipping it would not benefit his team. He said (Daily Record): “Naturally if you’re one of the so-called bigger clubs, it’s a worry because of the number of games. You think about someone like Callum McGregor who’s playing 60 to 70 games per season and then adding eight to 10 minutes on to the end of every one of them. I’m not overly in favour of it. If there are a few extra minutes to be played when there’s been a bad injury, then fine. But I don’t think the clock should be stopped for celebrating goals, for example.”
