Celtic wrapped up their Europa League group campaign with a 3-2 win over Real Betis in what was supposed to be a dead rubber.

It could prove to be very costly however with two more hamstring injuries likely to deplete the squad ahead of a critical spell of matches.

When Albian Ajeti pulled up with a hamstring injury in the 28th minute it left Kyogo Furuhashi as the last striker standing with Giorgos Giakoumakis already missing.

Far more worrying for Ange Postecoglou was the sight of Kyogo pulling up in the 70th minute, after attention he came off to be replaced by Ewan Henderson who quickly put Celtic 2-1 ahead.

As Kyogo hobbled off attention on the match was diverted to medical news, last week Jota pulled up after 70 minutes against Hearts and looks unlikely to play again before the winter break on January 2.

After the match Postecoglou admitted that it didn’t look good for his Japanese striker. Going into a highly important run of matches it looks like Mikey Johnston or Liel Abada will be playing as striker with Kyogo joining Jota watching from the stand.
