Losing Rodgers pales into insignificance for Celtic after latest injury blow

Brendan Rodgers

Celtic fans were left disappointed by Brendan Rodgers’ decision to leave the Scotland giants and join Premier League side Leicester City yesterday.

The Northern Irishman decided to leave his role as Hoops manager, despite being on verge of guiding the club to a historic treble.

However, Rodgers leaving Celtic at this stage of this season doesn’t seem to be the most frustrating recent news for Celtic fans…Callum McGregor’s injury is more devastating.

McGregor has been an integral part of Celtic recent success, operating in either an attacking role or as a deep-lying central midfielder.

But in their recent clash against Valencia in the Europa League, the Scotland international picked up a calf injury.

And now The Scottish Sun expects him to be out of action for the next couple of weeks.

As per this report, by the time McGregor returns from injury, he will face a real battle to be ready for Celtic’s clash with Rangers on March 31st.

Without McGregor, the SPFL title holders options in midfield are reduced, and they are without one of their most important players.

Celtic have built up a comfortable lead at the top of the Premiership table, but the midfielder’s absence will still be a massive blow to them.

The upcoming month will be a difficult one for the new manager Neil Lennon, and losing McGregor for a sustained period of time is the last thing he needed.
