Celtic: Giorgos Giakoumakis could be out for another three weeks

Celtic: Giorgos Giakoumakis could be out for another three weeks -Celtic

Celtic forward Giorgos Giakoumakis could be out for three more weeks, Ange Postecoglou has revealed.

The Lowdown: Giakoumakis’ struggles

The 26-year-old has struggled during his first season as a Celtic player.

Signed on transfer deadline day for £2.5m after scoring 26 Eredivisie goals last season, Giakoumakis struggled to get up to fitness and even picked up an injury during the warm-up in Celtic’s clash with Raith Rovers in September.

He has made just two starts in green and white and has been missing recently due to a knee issue.

The Latest: 2-3 weeks away…

Postecoglou was talking to the media, as relayed by The Go Radio Football Show, following Celtic’s 1-0 victory over Hearts on Thursday night.

He stated that defender Cameron Carter-Vickers will be available against Dundee United this weekend before revealing that Giakoumakis, labelled as ‘special’ by Dutch reporter Rik Elfrink after a four-goal performance in one match last season, is another two or three weeks away from returning.

Should he miss three more weeks of action, that would keep the striker out until Christmas, and he would therefore miss Celtic’s next six games in all competitions.

Will Giakoumakis prove to be a Celtic flop?

Yes, I'm concerned!

Yes, I'm concerned!

No, give him time!

No, give him time!

The Verdict: Ange needs a break

The latest news regarding Giakoumakis has theoretically kicked Postecoglou while he was down following injuries to Anthony Ralston, Jota and Stephen Welsh against Hearts.

Celtic have a busy schedule in December and the 56-year-old has had little luck when it comes to injuries ever since making the move to Scotland.

He could have done with having a fully fit squad before the winter break, but it seems as if he will need to keep relying heavily on top scorer Kyogo Furuhashi in a central role following the news on Giakoumakis.
