The Celtic manager Neil Lennon has said that his side has been hit by a number of injury problems ahead of the Scottish Premier league match with Inverness. Neil Lennon and Celtic will be focusing back on the Scottish Premier league after the hugely successful 2-0 win over Swedish club Helsingborg in the Champions League. This success has almost put the club back into the group stages of the Champions League, which is worth far more in revenue than what the club makes in the Scottish Premier league throughout the season. Neil Lennon will be facing a number of injury problems ahead of the match with Inverness.
As a result, he has said that he will be making last minute changes to the squad that will be facing the eighth placed team in the division. Joe Ledley, Beram Kayal, and Thomas Rogne are some of the major injury worries for Neil Lennon ahead of the match. Even though most of the squad is not suffering from long-term injuries, the niggling injuries that appear throughout the season will be responsible for keeping out a number of the regular players in the match against Inverness. Celtic are currently in the fifth position after having drawn their opening match of the season.
“We had 11 players out going into the Ross County game and I need to see how many we’ll have this time. We’re hoping Mo and Paddy will come into the squad. There is still a doubt about Daryl Murphy and Stokesy (Anthony Stokes). Filip Twardzik could come into the squad as well. Joe Ledley has had a scan on his groin and he is a doubt, and Beram and Thomas are doubts with ankle problems,” said Neil Lennon ahead of the match with Inverness after which the club will face Helsingborg in the second leg.
