Celtic assistant John Kennedy has offered an injury update on Mikey Johnston, Kristoffer Ajer, Jeremie Frimpong and Christopher Jullien.

Johnston has been out for ten months and underwent calf surgery, but Kennedy has revealed that he could return before the year is out.

Ajer limped off against Motherwell at the weekend due to a recurring groin problem and Frimpong was forced off after a nasty challenge from Motherwell's Devante Cole.

Jullien has been missing due to a back problem and has been out for the past two months.

But speaking to the Celtic View, Kennedy brought some good news for fans.

He said: "Kris had an issue against Lille, a minor groin issue. He didn’t injure it against Motherwell but he felt as the game was going on it was getting a bit tighter in that area.

"We didn’t want to take any risks with that so hopefully, he’ll be fine this week.

"Jeremie’s issue was the contact more than anything else. It was a bad tackle but he’ll be okay.

"Mikey’s done a bit of training now. He’s obviously missed a lot of time on the pitch so we’re just building him back up.

"Chris Jullien had a difficult spell there with a back issue but he’s looking in a better place now and we’ll hopefully get him on the pitch at some point during this international break."
