There’s good news for Celtic on the injury front. The bhoys are about to welcome Tom Rogic back into the fold for Thursdays tie against Hearts.

The manager confirmed to CelticTV the Australian will be ready to go. The midfielder was pushing to be in the squad for the Aberdeen tie but didn’t quite make it.

Elsewhere on the injury front; Nir Bitton could also make Thursday’s game, with Starfelt and Great Taylor not far behind.

Celtic are going into a massive run of fixtures, having viral players back and a bigger squad to choose from will be a massive boost.

Christopher Jullien is still on the way back, the Frenchman is likely to be back sooner rather than later.

Ange Postecoglou has asked for patience with the centre back, they don’t want to rush Jullien back only for him to go down with another injury.

Fingers crossed things are starting to get better, by January, there should be more reinforcements in the door.

Celtic are four points off the top, and have a League Cup final to contest. We can’t take any result for granted at the moment.

The Aberdeen game was a fine example of grinding out a result – we might need to grind out some more results before the end of the year.


  1. Christopher Jullien is finished. Few are ever the same when returning from long term injury like Jullien. For every Larsson these are 10 who are in and out and never quite the same player. Get him on for a few games, wrap him in cotton wool and try to punt him as early as we can. I was hoping he would return before December and would participate in a few games and then get him sold in January. Get 3/4 million for him would be good business. He’ll now return in the new year and be in and out and will basically be a liability. Need to have a strong consistent defence. His temporary fitness is no good.

    • You seem like a man who knows EXACTLY what he’s talking about. Your stats are unarguable “few are ever the same” and “1 Larsson = 10 wasters”. You seem to know a lot about business as well as you’ve assessed the pros and cons of accepting an offer for less money than we paid. Although of course, that’s based on your excellent stats.

      Ever thought about applying for a job at Celtic? Or better yet, you could become a professional psychic?
