CELTIC face an anxious wait over the fitness of several players ahead of their Champions League tie against FC Midtjylland, with goalkeeper Vasilis Barkas dislocating a finger in the warm-up against Bristol City last night.

Mikey Johnston and Karamoko Dembele were also forced off during the game, with manager Ange Postecoglou conceding that all three players are now serious doubts for the game at Celtic Park next Tuesday night.

“It’s just something we have to deal with,” Postecoglou said. “Barkas dislocated his finger in the warm-up. I don’t think it’s anything serious. Mikey and Dembele, we will just have to see how they recover and what sort of diagnosis there is in the next 24 hours.

“I’m not a doctor. I will leave that to the experts.”

Postecoglou was particularly concerned for Johnston, given the youngster’s recent injury woes.

“It’s disappointing for him because he looked really good in the last game and he started this game really brightly,” he said.

“He obviously felt something but hopefully it’s nothing too serious. It’s too early to tell. We’ll get a report tomorrow.”

Striker Albian Ajeti also hobbled from the action late on, but Postecoglou was more relaxed about his striker.

“I think he’s fine,” he said. “I think a few of the boys will be sore. It’s been a pretty solid camp.

“They’ve worked really hard and today’s game was fairly physical. I don’t think there is an issue there.”

The Celtic manager said that Tom Rogic will come back into his thinking for Saturday’s friendly against Preston, but he doesn’t expect to be able to call upon Odsonne Edouard or Kristoffer Ajer.

“Tommy trained yesterday and had a really good session so he is looking alright,” he said.

“Odsonne still hasn’t got out on the park yet. Kris has still got some issues. So I’ll just have to wait and see how they go in the next few days.”
