Ange Postecoglou: Callum McGregor

Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou revealed that captain Callum McGregor is set to face a spell on the sidelines after suffering a facial injury in their Scottish Cup win against Alloa. The Scottish giants are already without Kyogo Furuhashi, Tom Rogic, and Daizen Maeda for the Old Firm Derby. Liel Abada and Yosuke Ideguchi were also forced off due to injury in the game although their injuries seem more short-term.

“Liel and Yosuke should be OK, Cal’s a significant injury,” Ange Postecoglou said about Callum McGregor. “It’s a facial injury, I don’t know what it is but he’s not a great shape. It’s not going to be short-term, it looked quite significant. It’s been that sort of season. We have just had challenge after challenge and what we’ve done so far is just get on with it. He’s a very important player, not just for what he contributes as a footballer but as a person. I am gutted for him more than anything else.”

“It was good for him to get a goal. Obviously, he hasn’t played much and it was good for him to get 90 minutes and he is going to improve on that,” he added. “At the same time getting a goal is important for strikers and he will improve. With Furuhashi out injured and Maeda set to go on international duty with Japan, Postecoglou was pleased to see Giorgos Giakoumakis, who has struggled to make an impact at the Parkhead club since signing from VVV-Venlo last summer, get on the scoresheet.”
