Celtic are set to be handed a major boost with the return of long term injured defender Hatem Elhamed. The right-back looked to be on his road to recovery in Dubai before he pulled up in training with a new injury.
There was doubt about how long Hatem could be out for with the fresh injury but today it looks like the player is set to get the all clear on the coming days and weeks.
Taking to Instagram, the Celtic defender told his followers he had got great news today and he’d be back soon!
Elhamed has done well in the games he’s played for Celtic this season. The only thing the Celtic support can really complain about is the defender not being able to stay fit for longer.
When fit, the defender can play both right-back and centre-back. The player’s versatility a huge bonus when he’s available.
Since Hatem went out with an injury, Jeremie Frimpong has rose to prominence in the Celtic team. However, even Neil Lennon would likely admit he doesn’t want to over expose the young player in his first full season as a pro. That’s why Elhamed being fit would be a welcome boost.
