Celtic ran out as 5-0 winners against Dundee on Wednesday night to give Brendan Rodgers his 100th win in charge, however, it appears that victory did not come without a cost.
Daniel Arzani was handed his debut in the second half, but he lasted just 20 minutes before having had to be stretched off with an apparent knee injury.
And, according to News Corp via The Guardian, it seems the Australian could be set to miss the rest of the season with an ACL injury, although reports via The World Game in the teenager’s homeland are suggesting that he could be out for a couple of months with either an MCL or LCL injury.
Brendan Rodgers was quick to downplay the severity of the injury, telling the Scottish Sun that they did not think it was too serious.
“Daniel looked like he twisted his knee so we just have to assess that,” he said.
“He is a great boy and it’s unfortunate he picked up the injury with a run in the game. I think his knee just sort of gave way and he felt it a bit unstable. He was taking the applause on the way off, so I’m not sure how sore it was – I don’t think it was killing him!”
Celtic will face an anxious wait to find out the true extent of the injury sustained to the Manchester City loanee, who may look to return to the Premier League outfit for treatment and rehabilitation.
Arzani would have been delighted to have been able to get his debut underway with the Hoops, however, it could not have gone any worse than it did.
Hopefully, he will be back on the pitch before the end of the campaign, but until the results are known, it will be a nervy wait for all those involved.
