Ange Postecoglou has been talking to the media today ahead of the Glasgow Derby on Sunday and has given an update on his injured stats.
Greg Taylor sent off during Celtic’s 2-1 defeat to Alkmaar on Thursday. The defender had hurt his shoulder and tried shaking it off before having to wave the white flag.
Ange has confirmed he doesn’t think Taylor’s injury is serious and he should be available for the game on Sunday.
Likewise he also believes he could have James Forrest and James McCarthy back in contention for the game – although it’s not a forgone conclusion yet.
The final piece of info Alison Conroy gave out was Jusip Juranovic is fit and could go straight into the squad at Ibrox.

This will be Ange’s first taste of the derby – a full house at Ibrox with no Celtic fans present.
It’s going to be hostile and it will be up to Celtic to make sure they rise to the occasion. We have the attacking power but defending has been our downfall.
