Celtic: Alison Conroy shares Hoops update

Celtic: Alison Conroy shares Hoops update -Celtic

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou will be without Callum McGregor against Raith Rovers, while Giorgos Giakoumakis is also unlikely to start, Alison Conroy reports.

The Lowdown: Poor run of form

The Hoops go into Thursday’s League Cup quarter-final off the back of four defeats in five games in all competitions.

Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Livingston now means it’s seven months without a domestic away win, with the Hoops making their worst league start in 23 years.

Captain McGregor and Giakoumakis both missed the loss to Livingston, and it seems as if the pair will both be missing from the starting lineup against Raith Rovers.

The Latest: Conroy’s post

Reliable reporter Conroy took to Twitter on Wednesday, just over 24 hours before the meeting to share updates on the pair.

Postecoglou admitted that McGregor will miss the meeting at Parkhead, while Giakoumakis is unlikely to start.

“Ange Postecoglou says Callum McGregor won’t be back for Celtic’s League Cup tie v Raith Rovers. Giorgos Giakoumakis is in the squad for tomorrow night’s game but unlikely to start.”

The Verdict: Not ideal

A cup quarter-final won’t be straightforward, regardless of the opposition, so having the pair missing from the starting lineup could be a big blow.

Giakoumakis is still yet to feature for Celtic after his summer move, so the clash against Raith Rovers could have been the perfect opportunity to announce himself to the Parkhead crowd from the off.

He may still get the chance to feature, potentially from the bench, should he make it, unlike McGregor, but it appears as if Albian Ajeti could be the man to lead the line once again for Celtic.
