Brendan Rodgers reckons Celtic’s injury jinx is beginning to lift after Emilio Izaguirre survived a potential leg-breaker while key men are on the comeback trail.
The Hoops boss was delighted his side maintained their six point advantage at the top of the Premiership with last night’s 2-0 win against Hibs.
But he was more relieved to see his men come through unscathed after Izaguirre was stretchered off after an eye-watering challenge from Easter Road sub Darnell Johnston.
Rodgers revealed the damage to the Honduran was not as bad as first feared while James Forrest and Odsonne Edouard are not facing lengthy spells on the sidelines along with the rest of the Parkhead casualties.
The Celtic gaffer said: “ It was a clumsy challenge on Emilio. At best it was clumsy, because he was over on the ball.
“I think it scared Emilio a little bit, because he’s had issues with broken ankles before.
“But the medical team are telling me they think he’s got away with it.
