KYOGO FURUHASHI may be a doubt for Celtic’s trip to face Rangers on Sunday after picking up a knock against AZ Alkmaar.

The Japanese striker, who opened the scoring in the third minute, was replaced by Ismaila Soro late on and his manager Ange Postecoglou revealed after the game that he will have to be assessed before the match at Ibrox on Sunday.

Greg Taylor also went off earlier in the game in the Netherlands having picked up a shoulder injury and is also a doubt for the first meeting of the season against Rangers.

“We’ll just have to see about Greg,” said Postecoglou after the 3-2 aggregate victory. “He’s got a shoulder problem but as yet we don’t know the extent of it.

“Obviously, we’ve got a pretty quick turnaround and we’ll just have to see if he recovers in time.

“I thought Monty [Adam Montgomery] was outstanding coming on, a young player, knowing that we’re going to have defend a fair bit of the game. I thought he did an outstanding job.

“The rest of them, I think…Kyogo got a bit of a knock. We put in a big shift, so it’s going to be about recovery now over the next 24, 48 hours.

“Then we’ll assess how everyone is.”

If Furuhashi is unable to play against Rangers, Postecoglou would have no qualms about starting Odsonne Edouard up top in his place after a decent showing off the bench.

“We’ll assess that,” he said. “Odsonne started last weekend and we don’t have a lot of options up front at the moment. We’ve tried to rotate the players as much as we can and keep them fresh so we’ll see.

“He came on and did a job for us again – he held the ball up well so he can definitely be an option for Sunday.”
