Celtic: BBC share triple injury boost ahead of Leverkusen clash

Celtic: BBC share triple injury boost ahead of Leverkusen clash -Celtic

Celtic trio Kyogo Furuhashi, Giorgos Giakoumakis and Callum McGregor may feature in some capacity against Bayer Leverkusen tonight, according to the BBC.

The Lowdown: Injury woes

Furuhashi has missed the last five games for the Hoops after returning from international duty with a knee injury.

Captain McGregor hasn’t featured in the last four matches due to a hamstring issue, whereas deadline day arrival Giakoumakis is yet to make his debut in green and white.

However, it appears as if all three could be in and around the matchday squad against Leverkusen at Parkhead.

The Latest: Return to training

Within the BBC’s preview piece for the group stage clash against the Bundesliga side, they claimed that Furuhashi, Giakoumakis and McGregor have all returned to training.

Ange Postecoglou admitted that there is zero chance all three will start at Celtic Park, but revealed that he is expecting a couple to feature, whether that be tonight or on Sunday.

The Verdict: Big news

Furuhashi and McGregor have been key figures under Postecoglou, so having them back amongst the first team group is huge. The Japanese marksman has scored seven times in just nine games for the club, while the Scottish midfielder took the captaincy reins from the long-serving Scott Brown earlier this year.

Celtic have also relied heavily on Albian Ajeti in recent weeks, so having Giakoumakis fit is also good news.

Hopefully the trio will be named in the matchday squad against Leverkusen and will be ready if required, potentially from the bench.
