Ange Postecoglou has provided a squad update ahead of Sunday’s trip to face St Johnstone, as he admitted not many of his crocked stars will return to action this weekend.
The Celtic boss has faced his fair share of injury issues within the squad, and that was no different on Wednesday night. He was without the likes of Kyogo Furuhashi and Joe Hart, to name just a few of the long list of names currently out.
Although he admitted there is a chance that ‘one or two’ may be back, he is likely to have a similar squad to the St Mirren game for the trip to Perth.
“It’s unlikely with the short turnaround. We might get one or two, but at this stage, it will be a similar sort of team that went out on Wednesday night,” he said, speaking to Sky Sports.
It has been a tough month or so filled with fixtures for the Hoops due to the several injury issues we have had to face.
With one fixture remaining before the extended winter break, Postecoglou can look forward to the prospect of a rest for his squad and having more return from injury once the Scottish Premiership is back next month.
The focus for now, though, is getting through that final fixture with three points in the bag on Sunday.
