Image for Lennon gives injury update on two defenders

Jeremy Frimpong is in the Celtic squad to face Hibs tomorrow but Kris Ajer will miss the trip to Easter Road.

Both players were substituted during the 4-1 win over Motherwell with Ajer suffering from a groin issue and Frimpong the victim of a brutal challenge from Devante Cole.

Ajer was involved in the international controversy with Norway but despite flying to Oslo and being considered for action he’ll be watching from the sidelines tomorrow as Celtic chase three vital points.

Frimpong suffered the brutality of having studs stamped into his thigh by Cole, after treatment and playing on for 20 minutes he was substituted, afterwards Lennon was concerned about ligament damage.

With no fresh injuries from international duty Lennon will have some big decisions to make tomorrow with Chris Jullien available for a return to action for the first time since September 12 away to Ross County.
