Celtic: Carl Starfelt ruled out against Ferencvaros

Celtic: Carl Starfelt ruled out against Ferencvaros -Celtic

Celtic will be without centre-back Carl Starfelt for their Europa League clash against Ferencvaros, The Daily Record report.

The Lowdown: Injury pile up…

Ange Postecoglou hasn’t had a great deal of luck when it comes to injuries in his first season in charge of the club.

At this moment in time, along with Starfelt, the likes of Tom Rogic, Christopher Jullien, Greg Taylor and Karamoko Dembele are all unavailable for first-team action.

Starfelt, who joined in a deal worth £4.5m over the summer, had been a regular in recent weeks alongside Cameron Carter-Vickers, however, he’ll now be missing until after the international break.

The Latest: Another one…

Starfelt went off with a hamstring issue in the 0-0 stalemate with Livingston last weekend.

Postecoglou has now confirmed prior to the Europa League group game that the 26-year-old, who he called ‘athletic’ will not feature against Ferencvaros or Dundee.

As reported by The Daily Record on Wednesday, Postecoglou said:

“We lost Carl Starfelt in the last game and similar sort of timeline to Tommy (Rogic) I guess.

“We are hoping he will be back after the international break, but he will definitely miss these two games.”

How well do you remember these Celtic signings? First up, where did Christopher Jullien arrive from?

The Verdict: Who will come in?

The good news is that Postecoglou will have a number of options to replace Starfelt in his Europa League squad.

Osaze Urhoghide is still awaiting his Hoops debut, but you’d expect Stephen Welsh and Nir Bitton are the frontrunners to come into the side.

Welsh has made 10 appearances so far this season, whereas Bitton has also filled in when needed.

Teenager Dane Murray also has European experience under Postecoglou during the current campaign, so it’ll be interesting to see who comes in.
