Celtic: Injury expert makes Tom Rogic claim

Celtic: Injury expert makes Tom Rogic claim -Celtic News

Injury expert Ben Dinnery has claimed it is possible that Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic has suffered ‘bone damage’, Football Insider report.

The Lowdown: Australia withdrawal

Rogic was on the receiving end of a nasty challenge from Ross County’s Kayne Ramsay on the weekend and had to be replaced as a result.

Ange Postecoglou was hopeful that the attacking midfielder would still be able to represent his country, however, Rogic ended up withdrawing from the squad due to his ankle problem.

Daizen Maeda has also remained in Glasgow instead of representing Japan due to concerns with his fitness.

The Latest: Dinnery’s comments

Dinnery, who contributes for Sky Sports, was talking to Football Insider specifically about Rogic. He said that the 29-year-old’s injury may be worse than first feared, stating the ‘worst-case scenario is that there could be bone damage revealed by an X-ray’.

“It’s a difficult one.

“Sometimes players will withdraw from their national team but miraculously recover in time for their next domestic fixture.

“But to give some context, there is a massive disparity between those who withdraw from competitive and non-competitive games.

“Australia are involved in World Cup qualifiers. That in itself is a worrying indication we may be looking at something more serious than first thought.

“If it was an impact injury, it could be heavy bruising or a contusion around that ankle. In that case, it could be a case of pain management.

“That would be around that 10 to 14-day period. But the worst-case scenario is that there could be bone damage revealed by an X-ray.”

The Verdict: Fingers crossed

Celtic face rivals Rangers in a crucial Glasgow Derby straight after the international break, so Postecoglou will be desperate to have his best players available for the trip to Ibrox.

Rogic, labelled as ‘brilliant’ by Postecoglou, has been one of those this season, contributing to 15 goals in all competitions – eight of those coming in the Premiership since December.

His creative presence may be needed, especially if David Turnbull isn’t fit to start, so Celtic chiefs will have their fingers crossed that the Aussie hasn’t suffered bone damage as Dinnery suggested.
