The worrying Maik Nawrocki rumour

It is only a few suggestions on Twitter but a few people seem to be reporting that Maik Nawrocki suffered a hamstring injury at Kilmarnock yesterday.

The Polish defender played the full 90 plus minutes and seemed to be fully committed through to the final whistle as Celtic chased an equaliser to take the match into extra-time.

With the significance of the defeat it seems that no questions were asked after the match to Brendan Rodgers about injuries sustained on the Killie pitch.

Nawrocki was starting just his third competitive match since joining Celtic from Legia Warsaw, after previous partnerships with Cameron Carter-Vickers and Stephen Welsh he was playing in defence with Gustaf Lagerbielke.

With Welsh and Carter-Vickers both injured Rodgers had to turn to his two new signings for yesterday’s match, on the bench Liam Scales was listed for his first Celtic involvement in more than a year.

One tweet from any source can quickly gain momentum with the accuracy unknown.

In the past there would always be a journalist or two close to a player that could confirm or dismiss an injury rumour but those days are now in the past.

Asked about Welsh’s injury before yesterday’s game Rodgers suggested that he wouldn’t be going into the transfer market with Tomoki Iwata also an option for that decision.

A full hamstring injury could see Nawrocki out until the start of October, missing important SPFL matches as well as the start of the Champions League.

Celtic did sign Yuki Kobayashi in January but there has been no word on the former Vissel Kobe defender since he suffered an ankle injury in the pre-season friendly against Yokohama F Marinos.
