We reported earlier today it looked like Greg Taylor could be part of the Celtic squad for the Europa League game against Copenhagen after he was pictured at Celtic Park training on Wednesday morning.
The player picked up a knock against Aberdeen and had to be substituted early on. It looks as if the picture that made its way on to social media was of Greg doing a fitness test which he must have failed.
Leigh Griffiths picking up a knock is a huge concern for Celtic and might even change Neil Lennon’s whole formation. The 3-5-2 becomes less attractive without the Scottish striker.

Elhamed is nearing a return to the first team but he’s not there yet and that was more expected.
We’ll have to wait and see what Neil Lennon comes up with on Thursday evening. If Leigh makes it, he could just be on the bench.
