Celtic right-back Josip Juranovic has been ruled out for a couple of weeks with a hamstring injury, Alison Conroy reports.
The Lowdown: Juranovic under Postecoglou
Juranovic was one of 12 summer signings by the Hoops, costing £2.7m from Legia Warsaw. Ange Postecoglou believed that the 26-year-old would add ‘important quality’ to the Celtic squad, and he has used Juranovic at right-back and left-back in recent weeks.
The Latest: Sidelined
Postecoglou was talking to the media on Wednesday ahead of Celtic’s Europa League clash with Bayer Leverkusen.
He admitted that Juranovic will be out for “a couple of weeks” with a hamstring injury, with Conroy relaying the news via Twitter.

The Verdict: Another one…
Celtic’s injury list has been mounting up recently, and Juranovic is the latest man to be ruled out.
However, it could have been worse timing for Postecoglou and the Hoops, with international action set to take centre stage following this weekend’s clash with Aberdeen.
Celtic’s next game after the trip to Pittodrie isn’t until October 16, so hopefully a number of absentees will be in line for a return by then.
