Neil Lennon has ruled out two of his players for the St Mirren game who have hit the comeback trail in recent weeks.
There was a chance Leigh Griffiths and Tom Rogic would get the all clear to rejoin the squad on Wednesday but Neil Lennon has put the breaks on that idea.
🗣️ NL on injuries: "Mikey [Johnston]’s rehabbing well. We’ll assess him day by day, maybe another 2/3 weeks away from training. Leigh [Griffiths] and Tom [Rogic] are back training but haven’t played or trained a lot so they won’t be in the squad for tomorrow." #STMCEL— Celtic Football Club (@CelticFC) September 15, 2020
Both Tom and Leigh have not started a game this season because of their respective injuries. Even when they are fit, there’re no guarantees the pair will get into the squad.
Previously, both players have been big players for Celtic but Tom hasn’t been able to stay fit for the last 18 months. Leigh has had his issues off the field but when he finally got back at it, lockdown hit and he returned to training in bad shape.
Tom was the subject of a bid from an unnamed Qatari side but rejected the deal to stay at Celtic.
