‘Finally A Bit Of Good News’ ‘No Excuses On Saturday’ Celtic Fans Delighted After Latest Club Update

Celtic pair Mohamed Elyounoussi and Kristoffer Ajer will be able to play against Hibernian this weekend, the club have confirmed.

The duo were asked to self-isolate, along with the rest of the Norwegian team after Omar Elabdellaoui tested positive for the virus, but due to the differing policies of the Scottish and Norwegian governments, the Celtic stars have been given permission to train once again:

The Hoops have already had their fair share of bad luck with international breaks and positive virus tests this season and supporters on Twitter are happy that both Elyounoussi and Ajer will be available for selection:

Eloyounoussi’s excellent recent form means his absence would have been a major blow for manager Neil Lennon who is still under pressure despite the 4-1 win over Motherwell before the international break.

Ajer’s availability will also be welcomed with the Norwegian having taken the place of the struggling Shane Duffy at Fir Park last time out.
