Ange reveals double injury blow for Leverkusen tie

Image for Ange reveals double injury blow for Leverkusen tie

Tom Rogic and Carl Starfelt will both miss out on Celtic’s Europa League tie against Bayer Leverkusen.

The international duo were fixtures in the side but the midfielder suffered a hamstring knock away to Hibs on October 27 with Starfelt picking up a similar injury three days later at home to Livingston.

After picking up on the injuries early there were hopes that both players would be available for the League Cup semi-final against St Johnstone.

Now it looks like the pair could be out of action for a month, on Sunday Celtic are at home to Aberdeen with Hearts next up on December 2.

Celtic must take a point from Leverkusen tomorrow night to keep alive their chances of progressing in the Europa League- or hope that Ferencvaros can take their first points in the group from their trip to Real Betis.

Dropping into the Europa Conference after Christmas looks the most likely outcome but with away fans inside the Bay Stadium the hoops won’t be short of backing.

    Double injury blow? Don’t tell me you’re selling your soul like the other clickbait merchants?
    Come on, i thought you were better than that.

    Editor: Starfelt and Rogic were in with a decent chance of playing in the semi-final, it is a blow that they are still missing five days later.
