Kyogo Furuhashi and Nat Phillips both took part in training today ahead of Celtic’s Champions League clash with Feyenoord.
Brendan Rodgers was quizzed about their injuries after both players were substituted during Saturday’s 3-0 home win against Dundee.
Phillips was playing his first match since January and was reported to have rolled his ankle late in the first half but was seen running in today’s training pictures.

Kyogo’s shoulder issue seems to be more mysterious with fans fearing the worst when he left the pitch during the first half. After a few minutes treatment he returned as if nothing had happened, scored a second half header and created the third goal before being substituted.
It seems that the player and club are happy to manage the situation without the need for surgery.
Celtic will need to improve on the four goals that they scored in last season’s Champions League if they are to make progress, the main hope for that will be through Kyogo transferring his domestic form into the European arena.
Cameron Carter-Vickers, Stephen Welsh and Liel Abada will miss the match through injury.
