Lots of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to share their frustrations following their victory on Thursday against Raith Rovers regarding a fitness update on Giorgos Giakoumakis.

Following the game, relayed Ange Postecoglou’s confirmation of the Greek striker picking up a calf during the warm-up for their game at Parkhead against the Scottish Championship opposition.

Do you think Giakoumakis will come good for Celtic?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The 26-year-old was set to start at Parkhead on the bench, but the issue suffered during the warm-up forced him out of the squad and left Postecoglou disgruntled.

“He did his calf in the warm-up and we have just sent him off to do a scan now. He has picked up an injury, unfortunately,” the Australian said.

And Postecoglou was not the only one left frustrated by the issue, as these fans flocked to Chris Sutton’s tweet relaying the update.

What did these Celtic fans have to say?

“My god!!! Beyond words now ……”

“Shambles that they sign an unfit player and overweight in the first place. Even more of a shambles when you let two fit strikers leave.”
“Crazy!. Is there any free out there worth a shot?”
“Unbelievable”
“Becoming a joke now”

The 26-year-old joined the Bhoys this summer from Eredivisie side VVV-Venlo in a deal believed to be worth in the region of £2.25m (via Transfermarkt).

However, since arriving in Glasgow, Giakoumakis is yet to feature for his new side in any competition, with Thursday’s calf coming as a setback in his integration to the squad.
