The on loan Manchester City starlet started in Celtic’s 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock but was replaced by Scott Sinclair after 30 minutes after he pulled out.

Rodgers believes it is a hamstring issues which rules him out of Tuesday’s match at Celtic Park.

“It looks like a hamstring so we will get a scan on that,” said Rodgers. “Frustrating for him because he started the game very well but I suggest he will probably be out for a few weeks.

“It is unfortunate but the squad is here to cope with that. There are always going to be injuries and I have to get players up to a certain level with so many games.

“James Forrest will come into the reckoning for Tuesday but of course it is a disappointment to lose Pat to injury.”

Olivier Ntcham will also be assessed after the midfielder rolled his ankle.

Despite dropping two points, Celtic equalled their own British record of 62 domestic games unbeaten.
