Celtic: Giorgos Giakoumakis 50/50 for St Mirren

Celtic: Giorgos Giakoumakis 50/50 for St Mirren -Celtic News

Celtic may well be without Giorgos Giakoumakis for this evening’s clash with St Mirren.

The Lowdown: Still no Turnbull or Furuhashi

Ange Postecoglou is already without key attacking players in David Turnbull and Kyogo Furuhashi due to hamstring problems, with the pair last seen prior to the winter break.

Giakoumakis, who scored a hat-trick against Dundee last month, was absent from the draw with Hibernian on Sunday as the Hoops failed to break down Shaun Maloney’s side.

Daizen Maeda was the only centre-forward to make the trip to Easter Road and had an afternoon to forget, and it seems that could be the same this evening at Parkhead.

The Latest: GG 50/50

@PodTims relayed Postecoglou’s comments from his pre-match press conference on Tuesday on Twitter.

When it came to Giakoumakis, he is thought to be ‘50/50’ after an illness over the weekend, with Sky Sports believing he could miss out.

The Verdict: A blow

With Turnbull and Furuhashi showing no signs of an imminent return, being without Giakoumakis for another game isn’t ideal for Postecoglou.

Labelled as ‘class’ by teammate Josip Juranovic, the Dutch striker appeared to be finding his feet with four goals in two games against Raith Rovers and Dundee.

Postecoglou may well have to rely on Maeda once again when it comes to leading the line, but hopefully, the Hoops will be able to score for the first time since Giakoumakis’ late winner against Dundee.
