BRENDAN RODGERS has told Celtic fans Leigh Griffiths and Marvin Compper didn’t travel to Ireland with the squad on Saturday due to injury.

The Irishman explained he didn’t want to risk either but will assess them in the next 24 hours to see if they’ll make the trip to Armenia.

“Leigh and Marvin were injured so they didn’t travel to Ireland. Hopefully they will come with us but we will see when we go back.” Said the Celtic boss.

Compper has since been left out of aceltic’s squad for the trip to Armenia.

The German’s time at Celtic so far has been blighted by injury and if he can’t hit the ground running this season It could be curtains for the big defender.
