‘Disappointed and frustrated’, Celtic make statement and confirm negative tests

CELTIC have made a statement relating to the news that Ryan Christie would be forced to isolate for two weeks following the positive test returned by Stuart Armstrong. The Scottish Champions were rocked with the news that Odsonne Edouard had tested positive and would be unable to play in the October 17 fixture versus Rangers.

The Celtic statement took a subtle dig at UEFA’s decision to schedule International football in the middle of a pandemic.

The club also confirmed that those that were remaining at Lennoxtown over the break had all returned negative results.

Earlier this evening, Arsenal voiced their dismay at NHS Lothian’s decision to order Kieran Tierney and Ryan Christie to isolate, saying that the player was observing and adhering to the correct protocols so should therefore be exempt.

With Christie set to miss the match, Tom Rogic, Olivier Ntcham and David Turnbull will be relishing the chance to start against Rangers in the Highlanders absence.
