Callum McGregor will miss his third Celtic match running when he sits out Thursday’s Premier Sports Cup tie at home to Raith Rovers.
Ange Postecoglou’s squad should have more than enough to see off the challenge of The Championship side to go into the semi-final draw which takes place after tomorrow’s match.
Of more concern is the continuing absence of the Celtic skipper, in previous seasons he has racked up incredible/ridiculous numbers of matches with this season no different.
There was an eight day break before the return leg in Denmark but between July 28 and September 11 the midfielder played in 14 matches.

At the time it looked like a well deserved breather to prepare for facing Real Betis but what was reported to be a knock at the time has now kept him out of three matches.
Given his previous resistance to injury it is worrying if McGregor misses three matches on the bounce. Celtic should be fine tomorrow but the quicker that they get their captain back fully fit the better as the season reaches a critical stage. At club level.
