Ryan Christie is a major injury doubt for Celtic’s home match with Motherwell.

The midfielder was one of five changes that came into the team that won 4-0 away to Kilmarnock but had to be substituted midway through the second half.

Kilmarnock’s artificial pitch has claimed a number of victims down the years with Celtic still assessing the damage done to Christie’s ankle.

Ryan Christie is a big doubt, he’s rolled his ankle so, yeah, we’ll give him as long as we can but he’s a doubt for tomorrow.

Moi Elyounoussi replaced Christie against Kilmarnock as the team shuffled around with Celtic already leading 3-0.

With Jeremie Frimpong sold to Bayer Leverkusen last month and James Forrest still out injured Celtic’s options on the right are limited although the arrival of Jonjoe Kenny on loan from Everton solves a problem at right-back.

Albian Ajeti is available for selection with Celtic with the club ready to appeal against the suspension offered by the SFA for his part in the penalty Celtic were awarded against Kilmarnock.
