Albian Ajeti is expecting to be fit and available for the Glasgow derby on October 17.
The striker suffered a hamstring injuring scoring against Hibs on Sunday with most forecasts predicting that he’d be missing for a minimum of three or four weeks.
Celtic have been nursing Ajeti back to fitness after a year on the sidelines at West Ham with the Swiss internationalist yet to play a full 90 minutes.
DEADLY Celtic striker Albian Ajeti expects to be FIT for the Rangers game on October 17.
SunSport understands the crocked Hoops frontman – who has delivered five goals in nine games – has pulled out of the Switzerland squad for their trio of games against Croatia, Spain and Germany.
But the 23-year-old is confident two weeks of treatment on the hamstring strain suffered while scoring in Sunday’s 3-0 win over Hibs will leave him ready to take on Steven Gerrard’s men.
Ajeti is desperate to make the Gers showdown after dramatically rejuvenating his career following his £5million switch from West Ham United where he was a mere fringe player.
With Odsonne Edouard struggling for form and fitness a quick return for Ajeti would be a very welcome boost for the Celtic boss.
Moi Elyounoussi has scored in the last two matches with Patryk Klimala and Leigh Griffiths the other striking options.
