Brendan Rodgers has tested to CeltsAreHere that injured trio CCV, Reo Hatate and Daizen Maeda will play no part in Celtic’s last Champions League sport of the season despite all three being pictured on the education field.

The Bhoys take on Feyenoord in matchday six of the Champions League with Celtic already slotted to finish closing in the group.

Brendan Rodgers doesn’t want to rush any players lower back for what is actually a lifeless rubber.

Reo is simply again and will be barely away from being regarded for squad duties. Maeda is very close to a return and CCV ought to be good enough for Saturday which is a lots more necessary tie in opposition to Hearts.

CCV overlooked the Kilmarnock defeat at the weekend however a scan on his knee showed no signs and symptoms of any long time period unwell effects, Rodgers will want to manipulate the defender through this length of video games earlier than we get to the iciness break.

It leaves either Nat Phillips alongside Liam Scales in defence or a reprieve for Gustaf Lagerbielke. There will be no Maik Nawrocki in the squad due to the fact he wasn’t registered for the competition.

‘Can’t understand’ Pundit is shocked that Celtic’s £4.3 million summer acquisition is not beginning this season

‘Can’t understand’… Pundit is taken aback that £4.3m summer season signing is no longer starting for Celtic this season

When Celtic followers watched their membership spend massive money this summer on Maik Nawrocki, they would have predicted the Polish defender to be a first pick out for Brendan Rodgers.

Unfortunately, the 22-year-old was injured early into this season and even although he is returned to full fitness, Rodgers has defined why Nawrocki has yet to be considered in a Celtic jersey.

But that has nonetheless left Stephen McGinn taken aback that Rodgers is taking part in Nat Phillips ahead of Nawrocki even via the on-loan defender is actually miles off the tempo in terms of fitness.

McGinn stated [The Go Radio Football Show], “Celtic without Carter Vickers in the league, I don’t comprehend what the stats are, but I mean there’s a dramatic drop-off.

“And what I can’t recognize from the previous day is how a momentary mortgage in Nat Phillips, how can he be a great deal better than Nawrocki.

“I’ve watched Legia Warsaw against Aston Villa and I thinking they were an tremendous side. Really held their personal and beat Aston Villa in Poland, deservedly this season.

“But I’m thinking Nawrocki was a huge section of that team remaining season, and I’m questioning a younger participant they spent a lot of cash on how can Nat Phillips be the choice different than Nawrocki”

I said on TBR Celtic yesterday that Phillips wants to be immediately dropped with the aid of Rodgers in favour of either Gustaf Lagerbielke or Nawrocki.

Unfortunately, the Polish defender is now not accessible for the final Champions League match towards Feyenoord however I would have no hesitation in throwing him in towards Hearts this weekend.

After all, the £4.3m signing couldn’t do a great deal worse than Phillips who appears to be on his way lower back to Liverpool when his temporary mortgage deal ends this month.

But with recent reports suggesting Nawricki could be loaned out in January, maybe the ship has sailed for him this season underneath Rodgers.
