As soon as Ajeti pulled up in the first half, we couldn’t believe Kyogo Furuhashi was called back to the dugout to get ready to come on.
No, we didn’t have another striker on the bench, but given there was nothing at stake, Mikey Johnston playing up front for a dead rubber isn’t so bad.
We wrote at half time, Ange was taking a major gamble playing the Japanese star in the game against Real Betis and fans worst fears were realised in the second half.
Kyogo had to come off in the second half holding his right hamstring, Ewan Henderson coming on and making an instant impact.
Celtic scored tow goals without a natural striker on the pitch in the second half but there was no pragmatism from the manager on the night and he’ll be holding his breath Kyogo is ok for Sunday and the Cup Final in ten days time.
We are all hoping it’s just a precaution but hamstring injuries can be tricky.
Ange will hopefully give the support an update shortly.
