Celtic defender Carl Starfelt is set to miss the Hoops two games this week against Ferencvaros and Dundee after being brought off injured in Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Livingston.
The 26-year old was replaced before the hour mark due to him picking up a hamstring injury, which left several Celtic fans concerned over how long he might be missing.
“I have an X-ray tomorrow (Monday) so we will have to look out for it (results), but it’s probably an easier stretch. That is still a couple of weeks.”
With Starfelt now set to miss Thursday’s crucial European tie against Ferencvaros, Ange Postecoglou now has a decision on his hands as to who will replace the improving defender.
Given the improvements we have seen in Starfelt alongside the American internationalist, it will be a blow to have him missing on Thursday.
But it is time for another player to step up and play a part in what could be a huge fixture to determine our further involvement in European competition this season.
