Furuhashi is final doubt for Postecoglou

Ange Postecoglou could go into his first final as manager of Celtic without Japanese international Kyogo Furuhashi.

The Australian has steered the Bhoys into the Scottish league cup final against Hibernian on Sunday but faces injury concerns.

The striker is one of several attacking players unavailable for Wednesday’s league match at Ross County with Postecoglou hoping he does not pick up any more injuries at Dingwall.

James Forrest, Giorgos Giakoumakis and Albian Ajeti are missing along with winger Jota while Mikey Johnston will require a fitness test to play.

Postecoglou said of Furuhashi’s chances of playing at Hampden: “Who knows, I am not sure. He is not far off, it’s a day-to-day thing. If he is ready to go then we will play him, if he’s not then we will look to the following game.”

The centre-forward has been “improving” but the Celtic manager is wary of setbacks.

“Him and the medical team are working hard and we will see what happens,” he added.

With Celtic four points adrift of Rangers in the Scottish Premiership Postecoglou cannot rest too many players at Dingwall even if Ross County are level bottom with three wins in their 16 matches.
