Winger ruled out

Winger ruled out

Celtic winger Patrick Roberts has been ruled out of the midweek Champions League visit of Bayern Munich.

The 20-year-old on loan Manchester City prospect is expected to remain sidelined for up to six weeks after a suspected hamstring problem during the weekend draw with Kilmarnock.

"He felt it tighten up," manager Brendan Rodgers told BBC Scotland. "It looks like it will be his hamstring and that's about four to six weeks.

"He started really well in the game, good width in the game on that side and was causing them a problem."

Reaction of champions - Rodgers

Manager Brendan Rodgers says Celtic showed champions' credentials in their 2-0 victory at Aberdeen.

Aberdeen 0 Celtic 2

Both teams had a player sent-off as Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic accounted for third-placed Aberdeen 2-0 at Pittodrie.

Moussa Dembele headed in at the far post from James Forrest's cross to earn them an interval advantage.

But defender Mikael Lustig picked up a second yellow card and was dismissed with fourteen minutes remaining.

However, fellow full-back Kieran Tierney still added a second goal before home substitute Sam Cosgrove was sent-off for a bad late challenge
