The Lowdown: Celtic face another big game
Ange Postecoglou’s men return to league action on Sunday action, with title glory within their reach after opening up a lead over rivals Rangers.
Celtic still have plenty of work to do, however – they meet the Gers once more at the start of May – and victory at fifth-place Ross County may not be easy.
Ahead of the game on Sunday though, the Hoops have received a big injury boost.
The Latest: Giakoumakis passed fit
Taking to Twitter on Friday, reliable journalist Alison Conroy confirmed that Giakoumakis is officially back after recovering from a hamstring issue, delivering an emphatic four-word verdict:
“Giorgos Giakoumakis is back.”
The Verdict: Big boost for Hoops
This is an enormous positive for Celtic, who missed Giakoumakis’ firepower in last weekend’s Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Rangers at Hampden Park.
The Greek goal machine has averaged a goal every 96 minutes for the Hoops this season, netting nine times in 16 league appearances, and a potentially tight game on Sunday could require him to take one chance with aplomb.
A win at Ross County would feel like another significant step towards the title and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the returning Giakoumakis be the match-winner.
