Even with thousands of Celtic fans worrying over yesterday’s injury Alistair Johnston seems unconcerned about the knock that cut short his return to first team action.
After four matches out through injury the Canadian looked every bit like his real self in the win over Aberdeen until he pulled up in the 64th minute. After treatment he was replaced by Tony Ralston.
Johnston seemed to take a full part in the post-match celebrations but he did the same at Hampden last month holding crutches and wearing a moonboot before watching the next few matches from the sidelines.
Hope your wee knock/injury is nothing serious & youre ready for Saturday. We need you ??????

The spectacle of yesterday from arriving on the Celtic Way through to the lap of honour and dressing room party certainly made a favourable impact on the January signing.
If he is fit and available he will find himself being backed towards a domestic treble by around 80% of the fans inside Hampden as Celtic go for a historic eight treble.
