On-form Celtic winger Luis Palma has picked up an injury on international duty. Honduras’ manager confirmed the news after a training knock.

Late last week, Palma registered a sublime assist for the Hondurans versus Mexico. His national team manager confirmed his unavailability for the upcoming match, though.

Indeed Honduran gaffer Reinildo Rueda spoke to the media recently. He said (Diez): “A small discomfort that Luis Palma has in a duel he had with Sánchez, we have those situations, today we will have our first training session. Yesterday recovery work was done, all joint mobility was stimulated and there we will see the evolution of the entire group.”

From a Celtic point of view, it will be hoped Palma recovers quickly and is raring to go as soon as possible. The knock doesn’t seem too excessive, which is a positive.

The 23-year-old has been in incredible form of late. Since joining the Scottish champions, Palma has scored four goals and assisted five in just eight league appearances alone. He’s also bagged once in the Champions League versus Atletico Madrid.

His numbers and ability have been unmatched this campaign, and it will be hoped the Hoops can get him fit as soon as possible ahead of a crucial run in the table.
