Celtic winger Mikey Johnston is out injured again, according to reliable reporter Alison Conroy.
The Lowdown: Johnston’s injury woes
He is yet to start in a competitive match under Ange Postecoglou after suffering an injury in the Hoops’ pre-season training camp in Wales.
The Latest: Conroy’s tweet
Conroy took to Twitter following Celtic’s quarter-final victory to share two injury updates on Johnston and Giorgos Giakoumakis.
The summer signing injured himself in the warm up, whereas Johnston suffered a fresh knock in training.
“Ange Postecoglou says Giakoumakis will have a scan after injuring his calf in Celtic’s warm up tonight. Mikey Johnston out again after picking up an injury in training. Outside chance of Callum McGregor being back for next Thursday’s Europa League tie.”
The Verdict: Troubling
Johnston made just two league starts last season and is yet to turn out during the current campaign, so his injury history may start to become a bit of a concern for Celtic chiefs.
It could have been his chance to feature heavily with Kyogo Furuhashi sidelined, but he’s failed to take that chance with issues of his own.
The attacker still has just under four years remaining on his Parkhead deal, but should his absence continue, the Hoops may decide to take drastic action in regards to his Celtic Park future.
