Celtic have been dealt a monumental blow ahead of the Europa League game on Thursday and an injury we highlighted could leave us very short if it came to fruition.
Callum McGregor will NOT make the game against Real Betis after picking up a knock against Ross County. Celtic’s iron man has been ever-present in the Celtic side over the past five years and his role in the side has taken on greater significance since Scott Brown left.
The transfer window was positive for Celtic but I did feel we were lacking in the middle of the park and a Cal Mac injury would cause problems – sadly this has come to fruition.
Ange Postecoglou says Celtic captain Callum McGregor is out of tomorrow’s Europa League game v Real Betis with “a knock”. Anthony Ralston is back. Liel Abada will be missing for religious reasons. pic.twitter.com/oa2T7hwxXL— Alison Conroy (@AlisonGConroy) September 15, 2021
With adversity comes opportunity and now it looks like either Ismailia Soro or James McCarthy will have to deputise in Callum’s absence.
