Ange Postecoglou has another injury concern to worry about after Josip Juranovic limped off in the first half against Dundee United. The Croatian Internationalist was limping down on the left flank before Adam Montgomery replaced him midway through the first half.
It is yet another injury headache for the manager and his staff with the full-back now a doubt for Thursday’s game against Bayer Leverkusen.
Callum McGregor is fighting to get back to fitness for the game against the Germans but it remains to be seen whether he will make it back in time. Kyogo, Jullien, Taylor, Forrest and Dembele are unavailable and Giorgos Giakoumakis and Mikey Johnston are doubts. Add Juranovic to that list and you are nearing a full starting XI. Bolingoli was not included in the squad for today’s game and the Belgian has potentially suffered an injury as well. This leaves Celtic short in the left back position with Montgomery and potentially Liam Scales the only options ahead of Thursday and a trip to Pittodrie on Sunday.
James McCarthy also went off at half time with Soro replacing him. Although it is unclear whether this was tactical or another forced change.
