Chris Sutton has been reacting to more Celtic injury news, this time on summer signing Giorgos Giakoumakis.
The Lowdown: Calf injury
Giakoumakis was included in a Celtic matchday squad for the first time on Thursday but failed to make his debut in a 3-0 win over Raith Rovers.
Ange Postecoglou confirmed after the game that the Dutch striker injured his calf in the warm-up and was sent for a scan as a result.
Will Giakoumakis prove to be a Celtic flop?
Yes, I'm concerned!
No, give him time!
The Latest: Sutton reacts
Sutton took to Twitter late on Thursday evening to give his thoughts on the striker.
He described the latest setback for Giakoumakis as a ‘nightmare’ for Postecoglou.
The Verdict: Concerning…
Giakoumakis was brought in on deadline day to fill the void left by Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths.
However, he last kicked a competitive ball in May and seemed to be quite far off fitness-wise earlier this month.
Add a fresh calf injury into the mix, you’d expect he’ll miss Dundee United on the weekend, so it does seem a bit concerning in regards to the Hoops splashing £2.5m on the 26-year-old.
