Celtic defender Filip Benkovic admits playing against Rangers at Ibrox may have been a mistake, admitting he took a gamble with his fitness in order to play in one of the biggest games of his career.

His performances have left many Celtic fans wishing he can one day play permanently at the club, although most recognise he has a talent that should allow him to play regularly at English Premier League level.



During the Rangers match, I felt the same pain I’d felt at Aberdeen the week before in the 10th minute.



All we can do is enjoy him while he’s here and hopefully fitness problems are not a concern in the second half of the season as we look to defend our Scottish Premiership title.

The Croatian had to be substituted off just before half-time in the encounter, limiting our options to make substitutions in the second half and throwing Kristoffer Ajer into a high intensity match from the bench.

Before the game I’d taken some medicine, a lot of stuff, but it didn’t help.

The Leicester City loanee limped off but is hoping that the winter break will see him put a knee injury behind him to allow consistent performances in the hoops.
