Timeline given for injured Celtic striker

Giorgos Giakoumakis appears to be touch and go for Celtic’s League Cup Final against Hibs on December 19 at Hampden.

The striker hasn’t played since November 7, making a half hour appearance off the bench away to Dundee. It seems that a knee injury was picked up in that match.

Giakoumakis has only started two matches since his deadline day transfer from VVV Venlo but as one of Ange Postecoglou’s summer signings the hoops boss is keen to get him involved.

The 26-year-old was viewed as a signing that could take some of the pressure off Kyogo Furuhashi but with the busy December fixture list underway it looks like Giakoumakis will have limited game time.

Kyogo played for 88 minutes of Sunday’s 2-1 win over Aberdeen then the full 90 plus minutes in last night’s win against Hearts.

Albian Ajeti is the only other striker available to Postecoglou with nine more matches to be negotiated before the January break.

    Celtic cant keep dominating games then let pressure get to them if you go goal up you should relax manage game let opposition go for goal we will get another just wait you get three points for 1 goal as 3 we got one in our favour but who would bet it was off side the linesman had the perfect view and no flag no we might not see that man again in top grade football I’m surprise they didn’t give his address out on tv but it will be broad cast somewhere cause that’s what ipox club do remember sweet ally after some one had said something against his team it was name names where the thugs threaten to burn his house or stadium sfa should have fined him a manager wanting people name so they can be abused and worst
