ANGE POSTECOGLOU has cleared up any injury fears over Reo Hatate, after the midfielder was missing from the Celtic squad that defeated Banik Ostrava by four goals to two in last night's friendly in the Czech Republic.

Hatate had picked up an injury at the club's pre-season training camp, but Postecoglou played down any fears over a long-term absence for the 24-year-old, and said he should be back in training by the end of the week.

“He had a slight knock,” Postecoglou said. 

“He played both games and the decision was made to leave him out and he will train again on Friday for Saturday.”
