Celtic are hard at work at Lennoxtown, preparing for Saturday’s big cup final.

The Hoops will face Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Hampden Park in our final match of the 2022/23 season, with the Scottish Cup and a treble on the line.

There has been plenty of noise surrounding Ange Postecoglou‘s future this week.

However, the team seem to be fully focussed on the task at hand, if the some photos shared by the club are anything to go by.

In total, there are 27 images from Thursday training in the gallery.

They show the likes of Matt O’Riley, Jota, Reo Hatate, Daizen Maeda and Ange Postecoglou all at Lennoxtown.

Sead Haksabanovic is also snapped despite Ange recently suggesting that it could be “tough” for him to be fit in time for Saturday’s game.

Having the Montenegrin back would be a welcome bonus, even if he was unlikely to start.

Alistair Johnston is also included after going off last weekend, while Liel Abada also trained.

However, there is no evidence of Kyogo Furuhashi being involved in the session.

He is not seen in any of the photos. While this doesn’t automatically mean that he didn’t train, it certainly seems a real concern at this stage.

Kyogo suffered an impact injury in the 5-0 win over Aberdeen, although Ange was generally positive about his chances of being fit for the Hampden showpiece.

Will he be back in time for the game? Or will Hyeongyu Oh get a chance to continue his excellent form and make his biggest start yet?
