Celtic: Furuhashi and McGregor ready for Aberdeen clash

Celtic: Furuhashi and McGregor ready for Aberdeen clash -Celtic

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has said that Hoops pair Kyogo Furuhashi and Callum McGregor are ‘ready to go’ against Aberdeen.

The Lowdown: Leverkusen return

Furuhashi missed five games due to a knee injury, curtailing a strong start to the campaign which saw him net seven goals in nine matches, while captain McGregor was out for four games with a hamstring problem.

The pair both made surprise returns from the off in the Europa League on Thursday night, but they failed to complete the full 90 minutes in the 4-0 loss to Bayer Leverkusen.

It appears as if they are still getting up to full fitness, but they seem to be good to go from the start against Aberdeen this lunchtime.

The Latest: Ange’s comments

Postecoglou was talking to Sky Sports in a post which went out on Twitter on Friday evening. In the video, the Hoops bossed was asked for an injury update following the defeat to Leverkusen.

Although he revealed that no more players would be back from the sidelines, the 56-year-old said that Furuhashi and McGregor came through Thursday ‘really well’ and are ‘ready to go’ at Pittodrie.

The Verdict: Huge news

Two games in the space of four days for Furuhashi and McGregor could have been too much to ask, considering their length of absence beforehand, so knowing they are ready to go is a big boost.

The pair both missed the 1-0 defeat to Livingston recently, which meant it is now seven months without a domestic away win, so hopefully having them back fit in the league will help Celtic put that right.
