BRENDAN RODGERS has revealed the extent of Celtic’s injury list and how the medical team are working overtime to help the squad get back to 100%.

The Celtic manager says there are as much as TEN players currently on the treatment table.

On the specific of Leigh Griffiths who has been subject to a lot of speculation over the past month, the Celtic manager says the striker is back at Lennoxtown.

“He’s here in the treatment room. We’ve got ten injuries so our medical team are working hard. We’ll just see over the next few weeks where Leigh’s at.

“Tom Rogic is available and will be in our squad tomorrow. Olivier Ntcham we just need to wait 24 hours to see where he’s at, same with Kouassi as well.”

Ntcham and Kouassi were both substituted with injuries in Celtic’s 3-0 win over Hearts at the weekend.

Tom Rogic has to be managed when it comes to game time, there was a thought that after his game time in the Hearts game the Australian would be rested for Dundee.

It’s great to hear the midfielder is available.

Celtic are hoping their injury problems will ease over the next couple of months.

Ajer being back is a big bonus but will he be dropped for Benkovic and Boyata pairing?
