It’s two possible season-ending injuries in a week for Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic.
On Sunday, during the Scottish League Cup Semi-Final in which Celtic won 3-0 against Hearts, Eboue Kouassi was substituted during the first half with a knee injury. In midweek, Daniel Arzani came on for his Celtic debut and also had to be substituted off with a knee injury.
And Rodgers has confirmed it looks set to be the worst news for the pair, conveying the news in his pre-match press conference ahead of his side’s clash with Scottish Premiership leaders Hearts at Parkhead on Saturday.
BR on injury updates “Unfortunately, it looks like cruciate injuries for both Daniel Arzani and Eboue Kouassi. It’s disappointing for them because they’ve been working hard to get into the team.”

Unsurprisingly, this recent update has stimulated quite a reaction from several Bhoys supporters on Twitter, with many fans choosing to display their empathy towards the players, while plenty of other fans took the opportunity to convey their dissatisfaction at the number and frequency of injuries Celtic have at the moment…
Long road back for them with thus injury. Feel bad for the lads.

Arzani looked good in the short time he was on, hopefully he can come back stronger
