A score of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to react to the latest injury news on the squad ahead of this weekend’s clash with Motherwell.
Among the headlines, Mikey Johnston available for Motherwell today whilst Christopher Jullien & James Forrest are back in training.
However, versatile full-back and summer signing Josip Juranovi? remains unavailable in a continued blow to Ange Postecoglou’s options.
Popular Celtic fan account Everything Celtic (@aboutceltic) took to Twitter to update fans on the main stories regarding the fitness of the squad, with many fans reacting to the latest news on Mikey Johnston.
What have some Celtic fans been saying in response?
“ Christ if we mikey gets injured tommorow well”
“Could get injured putting his socks on”
@bhoysviews, replying to @kellybaby3
“Bet you 20 that Mickey won’t last 45 min without getting injured again”
“Wee Mikey would get injured on A question of Sport.”
“Wee chocolate legs Johnston”
“Spaghetti hamstrings Johnston”
There are certainly worse snippets of news out there, and returning short-term and long-term absentees will plug essential gaps in a depleted Celtic squad.
However, Juranovic’s absence as an attacking full-back continues to be a blow for the Bhoys, who will be hoping returning faces can play a role in securing three points against Motherwell.
As for Johnston, his injury record is particularly salient and it is unsurprising that fans have singled him out as a concern.
