James Forrest is at the centre of an injury mystery after Ange Postecoglou revealed that he won’t resume training until after the October break.

The winger played and scored for Celtic in the 2-0 Europa League win at home to Alkmaar on August 18 but hasn’t featured since then.

Postecoglou spoke hopefully of having Forrest available for the Glasgow derby on August 29 but has been vaguer about a return timeline until today’s media conference.

Being bracketed alongside Chris Jullien, who hasn’t played this year is a worrying development with the goals, assists and experience of Forrest badly missed as Postecoglou reshapes the Celtic side.

Last September it was discovered that Forrest had been playing with a broken bone in his foot, the original forecast of a three month absence turned into six with the season almost a write off.

Liel Abad has replaced Forrest in the Celtic side but the 21-year-old is brand new to the environment and the demands that come with playing for the club.
