When Anderlecht come to town next week Celtic could be without star striker Moussa Dembele after Chris Davies confirmed that the horrible challenge by Kipre has had a lasting effect on the Frenchman.

Moussa, who played on after the boot to the ankle and scored the second goal from the spot in Celtic’s cup win will certainly sit out Wednesday nights game against Motherwell and could miss the home tie against the Steelmen on Saturday according to Davies.

“Moussa’s got a bad knock and twist of the ankle. Thankfully it’s not what it could have been, which is a long-term one. He was limping around after it. The more you watch it back in the replays, the worse it gets. He is, luckily, quite robust physically and he got away with it.

“It’s likely he will be (out for the weekend as well). We will just have to see how he responds. Obviously it’s swollen and sore. We will find out in the next few days.”

“We will just have to see how it goes. It’s quite difficult to tell when it’s 48-72 hours after that kind of injury, that twist and contact. We will just have to see but hopefully he will be available for that.”
