Celtic’s win in the Glasgow derby came at a cost. Celtic were in complete control of the game before injuries struck and they had to finish off with ten men. Kieran Tierney and Boyata injuries looked bad as both players seemed to know straight away their game was up.
Celtic fans would probably have expected the worse kind of news about Tierney with the usual ever-present left-back missing for most of this season. But it looks like good news for Keiran.
🗣️ JK on injuries: "@kierantierney1 was ok. He was out for a period so cramped up a little bit but we don't see any big issues there. Dedryck seemed to have some form of hamstring issue which will get assessed today and tomorrow and we’ll see the extent of that."

Boyata, on the other hand, doesn’t sound too good. He has had his injury problems too this season and could have played his last game in a Celtic shirt of the injury keeps him out long term.
In one of the worse injury hit seasons from (my) living memory, Celtic are still thirteen points ahead in the league and are still in the hunt for a never been done before treble treble.
