Celtic will have Kyogo Furuhashi available for the visit of Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership tomorrow after he returned to training at Lennoxtown with no issues.

Kyogo suffered an apparent shoulder injury against St Mirren last weekend and there was concern he may miss some upcoming matches.

However, Ange Postecoglou has confirmed he is good to go after featuring in training on Thursday and Friday, which is excellent news.

Celtic midfielder suffers injury setback

David Turnbull, however, will miss out after picking up “a bit of a knock” in that Scottish Cup win over the Buddies, per the manager.

The Bhoys boss confirmed the rest of the squad is fighting fit with no other issues meaning he will again be able to name a very strong starting eleven and bench.

The injury is a blow to Turnbull who has only started twice since the World Cup break. He would have been hoping last week’s cup match could be a springboard towards more regular inclusion in the eleven.

His performance wasn’t up there compared to Aaron Mooy, Reo Hatate or Matt O’Riley, but this injury may well have been a factor on the evening.

It’s difficult to see him getting many more starting opportunities between now and the end of the season if everyone else stays injury-free.

Hopefully, he isn’t out for too long. The manager will be using the full depth of his squad over the next few months and we’ve seen how effective bench options can be in recent matches.

In other news, Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou brilliantly sidesteps media circus surrounding Beale and Martindale.
