Celtic: Johnny Kenny makes swift return for Ireland under-19s

Celtic: Johnny Kenny makes swift return for Ireland under-19s -Celtic News

Celtic forward Johnny Kenny returned to action for Ireland’s under-19s following an injury scare earlier in the week.

The Lowdown: Stretched off

The 18-year-old made the move to Parkhead in January, arriving from Sligo Rovers in a deal worth an initial £135,000.

He has had multiple setbacks in Glasgow already and is still awaiting his senior Hoops debut, although he did score on his Celtic B debut earlier this month and is currently away with Ireland’s under-19s.

Unfortunately, the teenage striker had to be stretched off, holding his knee against England on Wednesday with what looked to be a knee problem.

The Latest: Goalscoring return for Kenny

Irish broadcaster RTE shared a match report from the Ireland under-19s’ 4-1 defeat to Portugal on Saturday evening.

They shared details of Kenny opening the scoring in the first half, making a swift return to action from what appeared to be a nasty injury.

The Verdict: Good news

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou already has concerns over both Tom Rogic and Daizen Maeda during the international break, and news of Kenny being stretched off during the week wasn’t ideal. However, it is positive to know that his issue wasn’t serious and that he could return to action within a few days.

Hopefully the 18-year-old will continue to find the net with regularity for Celtic’s B team over the coming months, which could lead to a breakthrough into Postecoglou’s senior squad next season.
