Celtic: Devlin shares ‘huge’ injury boost

Celtic: Devlin shares ‘huge’ injury boost -Celtic

Celtic reporter Kieran Devlin is hopeful three injured Hoops stars will be back available after the international break.

The Lowdown: Injury issues

Ange Postecoglou has had a number of injuries to deal with in his first season as Parkhead boss.

He was able to call upon Kyogo Furuhashi and Callum McGregor against Bayer Leverkusen and Aberdeen after the pair returned from injury, however, a number of players are still out.

Josip Juranovic suffered a knock against Dundee United, Greg Taylor underwent shoulder surgery last month and James Forrest has missed the last 10 games.

How long will Postecoglou be in charge of Celtic?

The Latest: Devlin’s claim

Devlin sent a message on The Athletic’s discussion page for the Aberdeen game on Sunday afternoon.

He admitted he is hopeful the injured trio will be back available after the international break, labelling the 2-1 win and the injury news as a ‘huge boost’.

“Briefly popping in to say that was an important result. First time this team won ugly, and first time a sub in Rogic made a difference. Huge boost going into the international break, hopefully with Juranovic, Taylor and Forrest back available in a fortnight.”

The Verdict: Time for Celtic to kickstart their season

The Hoops have won just three of their last nine games in all competitions, however, with a number of injured players hopefully returning after the international break, it could be the time Celtic’s season steps up a gear.

They still have five games in October when club action returns, four of which are in the Scottish Premiership. Postecoglou may have a near fully fit squad to choose from for those fixtures, and maximum points should see them climb up the table.

It could make or break Postecoglou in Glasgow and he may have no excuses with three potential injury boosts prior to Celtic’s next fixture.

In other news: Celtic are considering boss with similar style to Ange; he played golf with Desmond last week.
