Celtic winger Mikey Johnston has said he is hopeful of returning from injury for the Hoops’ opening Europa League group game against Rennes next week.

Johnston has already had a couple of injury problems in the early weeks of the season, having also had a knee injury in recent weeks, as per the Daily Record, which added that he experienced muscle and thigh problems earlier in his Celtic career.

His emergence in this campaign has seen fellow left winger and previous Celtic Player of the Year Scott Sinclair going from scoring 17 goals in 55 appearances across 3,484 minutes last season to just one goal in four substitute appearances totalling 56 minutes so far in 2019/20.

The Daily Record reported that the 20-year-old will miss Saturday’s trip to Hamilton in the Premiership with a groin strain but could be back for the European assignment in France next Thursday.

Last week, the youngster was forced to pull out of the Scotland under-21 squad for their European Championship qualifiers against San Marino and Croatia over injury concerns, as reported by the Daily Record, but now it seems that his layoff will be a short-term one.

Lewis Morgan, another left midfield player in Neil Lennon’s squad, has had 10 appearances this season and 437 minutes of gametime, scoring just one and setting up two goals.

However, despite that knee injury in August and despite picking up a knock in the recent win at Rangers, as per the Daily Record, the left winger has still featured in 10 of Celtic’s first 13 matches of the season.
