Celtic fans were disappointed by Brendan Rodgers’ decision to leave the club and join Leicester City yesterday.
Rodgers decided to leave his role as Celtic manager, despite being on the cusp of sealing a historic third consecutive domestic treble.
But that was not the most frustrating recent news for Celtic fans. Callum McGregor’s injury blow is more devastating.
The Celtic academy graduate has become an irreplaceable player in the midfield ranks, operating in either an attacking role or as a deep-lying central midfielder.
But in the recent clash with Valencia in the Europa League, McGregor picked up a calf injury.
And now The Scottish Sun expects the Scotland international to be out for weeks and he could be sidelined for the whole of March.
As per this report, McGregor faces a battle to regain his fitness by the time Celtic meet Rangers in the Old Firm Derby on March 31st.
Without McGregor, Celtic’s options in midfield are reduced and they are without one of their most important players.
The Bhoys have built up a comfortable lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table but McGregor’s absence will still worry them.
March will be a difficult month for new manager Neil Lennon, who needs to cope without the 25-year-old star in the league and the cup.
