Latest Injury Report: Celtic Fc 25 years-old defender Alistair Johnston sends an upbeat Instagram post as Celtic win against Hibernian

Last night’s nervy 2-1 win over Hibernian gave Celtic back their three-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.

Adam Idah, who the Hoops signed in the winter, scored two penalties under a lot of pressure to seal a dramatic win. His second goal came in extra time at Easter Road.

The home team had a few good chances in the second half but missed them. For example, they missed a chance to score after Dylan Levitt tied the game at hour mark.

Even though they only had three shots on goal, Brendan Rodgers’ team came back to win an important game in the title race. This put the ball back in Rangers’ court before next week’s game against Ross County [BBC Sport].

Celtic weren’t playing their most fluid game in Leith, but we can take some comfort in the fact that they didn’t lose any more points in the race for the league title.

Also, Alistair Johnston had to be taken off after only ten minutes because he collided badly with Nectarios Triantis, which led to Idah’s first goal.

Rodgers gave a report on the Canadian defender’s health, saying, “It was a bad one for him.” I believe he went to the hospital. I’ll find out a little more later.”

Alistair Johnston of Celtic sends a happy Instagram message
Johnston got hit pretty hard in the other team’s area, and the Celtic medical staff did a great job of getting him checked out quickly and properly before taking him off.

Still, the 25-year-old posted on Instagram last night from a hospital bed to say how happy he was that the Bhoys won at Easter Road. He captioned the picture, “Get in. Massive +3 @celticfc.”

There is no question that Johnston would have been in a lot of pain at the time, but it’s good to see that he seemed happy after his team won.

We hope he gets better quickly and is fully fit again as soon as possible so he can play a part in the title run-in.

Multi-award-winning Scottish journalist Anthony Joseph reveals what will happen to Celtic Fc formation Between Kyogo Furuhashi, Hyeongyu Oh and Adam Idah when Hyeongyu Oh returns back

Celtic bought a striker in January, but it’s still not clear what the club plans to do in the long run.

Adam Idah came from Norwich City and joined on transfer deadline day. He will play on loan until the end of the season, with no chance to buy.

He told The Celtic Exchange that Celtic didn’t include a buy or exclusive option in the deal, which he thought was “strange.” However, that doesn’t mean they can’t bid for him in the summer.

Brendan Rodgers can now choose between Kyogo Furuhashi, Hyeongyu Oh, and Adam Idah as his strikers since Idah joined the team.

Anthony Joseph, on the other hand, said that when the South Korean star comes back from the Asian Cup, it will make Celtic’s loan player less important.

So, until Hyeongyu Oh comes back, this short time is very important for the Irishman to show what he can do. If he does, he will be closer to starting because the team isn’t playing well right now.

Just going off on the draw against Aberdeen: the player had a good start, and we hope that continues in the weeks and months to come.

In any case, Anthony Joseph, a reporter for Sky Sports, talked about what happened with Celtic’s strikers after Adam Idah joined and what that means for the future.

Celtic’s choices for strikers

“I don’t think it means they have someone lined up,” Joseph said about Idah’s short-term deal. “I believe it means this is only a temporary fix.” Adam Idah signed on loan, with no chance to buy, so that’s the only way we can understand it.

“Just because it’s a loan deal doesn’t mean we can’t bid for him in the summer.” But they don’t have the first or only choice, which seems strange to me as a Celtic fan who is not involved with the team. It’s always good to have that choice in case he scores on all fronts by banging them in. Setting up goals for the Republic of Ireland in March internationals and other things like that.

“He is only seen as Oh’s back-up when Oh isn’t around.” When Oh comes back, Idah will be seen as the third choice right now, unless he starts playing well, doing well in training, and moving up the list. That could happen.

Because of this, I thought it was odd that there was no choice to buy included. But I guess Celtic just wanted to close the deal, and Norwich probably didn’t want to buy. If he doesn’t do well, it just gives other clubs a better chance with him.

Start Adam Idah against Hibernian.

On Wednesday night, Celtic will go to Edinburgh to play Hibs, who are having a bad season. It would be a good sign if Idah got to start.

No, the 22-year-old didn’t join to see the sights of Glasgow. He did it to show that he can score goals for a team like Celtic.

It’s clear that Kyogo is having a hard time and needs some help. While he shouldn’t be dropped, he can play in the wrong spot, as he did in the second half against Aberdeen.

There was a Japanese star who looked pretty good and was much more active in the game. Rodgers should aim for that.

Adam Idah was the only player signed by Celtic on the last day of the transfer window, which was the only big news at Parkhead.

About an hour before the game ended, the Republic of Ireland player agreed to spend the rest of the season on loan with the Bhoys.

His deal doesn’t include an option to buy, though, so it’s still unclear whether the 22-year-old will remain in Glasgow for good.

When he came off the bench for his start away to Aberdeen on Saturday, Idah made a big difference. He was calm enough to slide in Nicolas Kuhn, whose deflected shot saved a 1-1 draw at Pittodrie.

Fans were happy with his first few minutes with the team, so there is a good chance that the Cork-born scorer will be used on Wednesday at Easter Road against Hibernian.

Hyeongyu Oh is still playing in the AFC Asian Cup, so the new player that the Hoops brought in has a chance to compete with Kyogo Furuhashi for a spot in Rodgers’ front line.

David Wagner talks about why he let Adam Idah join Celtic.
Norwich City boss David Wagner said that Idah wanted to go on loan to a different team during the middle of the season.

The 52-year-old also said that he let the Irishman move north of the line because he had signed Bologna forward Sydney van Hooijdonk until the end of the season.

Wagner told the Daily Record, “We have to say that Adam made his point clear that he likes to go on loan. For me, what was clear was that it doesn’t make sense to keep someone who wants to go on loan all the time.” I completely agree with Adam’s choice and thoughts.

“I backed this at the right time because our goals and aims are too high and we need a group that is fully committed.” It was a perfect situation when the chance came up very late to borrow Sydney with the choice to buy him back.

“I see Adam’s point. That’s why I agreed with this choice. He could have stayed and fought for his spot, but I wouldn’t have let him.

Adam Idah will work hard for Celtic and make a big difference.
Furuhashi, Celtic’s main striker, hasn’t been as strong as he was last season for some reason. He has scored 11 goals and set up three others in 32 games across all tournaments [Transfermarkt].

While looking at the situation, it is clear that the Japanese star needs someone to help with offense, especially since the Bhoys are in the middle of a title fight.

Based on his role, Idah can help Rodgers’ team attack from now until the end of the season, whether he starts or comes off the bench.
