Celtic injury news as Mooy and Iwata are ruled out of Hibs clash

Ange Postecoglou has provided a Celtic injury update after a number of his players were not selected for international duty this week. Defender Greg Taylor was not named in the Scotland squad with Steve Clarke detailing that the full-back had been playing through the pain barrier at Parkhead. Cameron Carter-Vickers was also left out for the USA and interim boss Anthony Hudson explained that a knee problem meant he was not selected. Postecoglou has now offered an injury update on his squad ahead of tomorrow's Premiership clash against Hibernian, as he ruled out Aaron Mooy and Tomoki Iwata.

And Tomoki Iwata got a bit of a back strain and couldn’t train. “At a push, both could have played but with a two-week break, we have decided to leave them out. “But Daizen Maeda is back and Carl Starfelt, who went off at half-time (against Hearts), is fine as well.” With regards to Taylor and Carter-Vickers, Postecoglou added: “We provide all the relevant information to the international teams then it’s up to them to decide whether they call the players up or not, but from our perspective, Greg’s available and will play (on Saturday). It’s the same with Cameron.

“It’s up to the international manager and their medical team to decide whether they call them up or they decide to leave them this time for rehab purposes. “I wouldn’t read too much into it, both will play on Saturday. All players have some issues here and there at different times and we manage them as best we can.” At The Herald and Times we know the importance of reaching you where it's convenient, which is why we've engaged top sportswriter James Morgan to bring you an irreverent daily update on what's happening in the world of sport.
