Celtic star only has 'half a chance' of playing again this season

Josip Juranovic may not play again for Celtic this season after the right-back was only given "half a chance" of returning for the final league match against Motherwell.

Celtic will secure the Premiership title if they avoid defeat against Dundee United at Tannadice on Wednesday night and will then lift the trophy in front of their home fans in Saturday's lunchtime finale.

Juranovic has been out injured since the Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Rangers last month with Anthony Ralston deputising at right-back.

Speaking via Celtic TV, manager Ange Postecoglou said: “Everyone’s okay after the weekend so we don’t expect any sort of change from the ones available.

“Josip Juranovic is still not fit for tomorrow. He’s half a chance for the weekend – we’ll see. He’s in rehab. But everyone else is okay."
