Injury boost for Celtic as attacker returns to training

Taking to his Instagram, the attacker posted a photo of him out training.

Johnston will be hoping to get himself fit ahead of the October 17 match versus Rangers at Celtic Park. With Ryan Christie and Odsonne Edouard set to be out, Johnston will hope that he can make the bench.

The youngster pulled up in a win over St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park as Neil Lennon prepared to bring Patryk Klimala on. Odsonne Edouard was replaced instead meaning that Johnston remained on the park only to pull up again a few minutes later and be forced from the field.

Neil Lennon was less than impressed with Johnston, as having used his three subs, finished the game with ten men. The game was already won but it irritated the manager as he asked Johnston if he was okay to continue only for the player to say he was.
