BRENDAN RODGERS is not sure how long Olivier Ntcham will be out for after the player was forced off at halftime during Celtic’s win against Hearts on Sunday.
The Frenchman made way for the game changing Ryan Christie who came on to win a penalty, assist in the second and score the third.
Even though Celtic did not miss Ntcham in the second half he is still a big player for the bhoys and Brendan Rodgers knows how vital he can be.
Speaking about both Eboue Kouassi and Olivier Ntcham in the aftermath of making the final the Celtic manager shed some light on both mens injury worries.
“Eboue hyper-extended his knee so he had to come off. Olivier Ntcham felt a tightness in his hamstring too.”
Celtic do not have their troubles to seek when it comes to injury problems. Jozo Simunovic, Scott Brown and Leigh Griffiths are all out with Nir Bitton still sidelined.
Filip Benkovic is also playing with a slight hamstring injury and cannot play in ALL of Celtic’s hectic schedule heading into the Christmas break.
