Celtic: Johnny Kenny suffers injury with Ireland’s U19

Celtic: Johnny Kenny suffers injury with Ireland’s U19 -Celtic News

Celtic forward Johnny Kenny had to be stretched off with what appeared to be a knee problem in Ireland’s U19 clash with England, The Irish Examiner report.  

The Lowdown: Kenny’s struggles

Kenny was one of five January arrivals at Parkhead, joining from Sligo Rovers in a deal worth an initial £135,000.

The 18-year-old is yet to make a senior appearance for the Hoops, though, and has had to overcome multiple setbacks since moving to Glasgow.

Kenny had to recover from an injury earlier this year and was also required to follow isolation protocols, eventually scoring on his Celtic B debut earlier this month.

The Latest: Stretchered off

As reported by The Irish Examiner, Kenny was forced off in the first half for Ireland’s U19s against England.

The forward needed to be stretched off after colliding with Matthew Cox and was seen holding his knee.

The Verdict: Nightmare

Kenny has been extremely unfortunate since moving to Celtic, and it seems as if this setback could be the worst of the lot, considering the stretcher was required.

The teenager was looking lively before his collision with Cox, striking the post early on, with The Irish Examiner describing him as a ‘livewire’.

This update will also come as bad news for Ange Postecoglou, who already has concerns over Daizen Maeda and Tom Rogic during the international break, with Kenny now added to the ever-mounting list of problems during this two-week interval.
