Kayal out for four months


Get well soon Beram.

Rocko, I’d like to see a Palestine flag added to the smileys.

Celtic have confirmed that Kayal is out for the season. Huns will be thrilled their appeal paid off.

Whats the exact injury?

Not sure but ankle surgery was required.

Some further news on the injury front.

Glenn Loovens and Kris Commons have also returned to training and all four will be available for selection against Dundee United this Saturday, January 14.

Mo Bangura, who tweaked his right knee, faces another week on the sidelines but Mark Wilson and Paul Slane will return to training on Friday. Both will be included in the closed door friendlies over the coming weeks in order to regain match fitness.

Daniel Majstorovic is set to return to training on Monday and could be available for the St Mirren match on January 21.

This is also the third big injury Kayal has sustained in a season and a half with us.

Broken hand, hernia and now some ankle ligament damage. Think he’s been unlucky more than being injury prone as two of these were the result of contact challenges.

Yeah they’re not from strains or anything and I think a player who puts himself about like he does will always pick up knocks. He broke his nose too.

Disgusting challenge anyway:


Totti, larry, dancingbaby, TASE et al - what did you bhoys make of the tackle? I’m loathe to give McCulloch the benefit of the doubt because he’s a dirty thug but I’m edging towards disagreeing with Rocko.

You’ve got to expect tackles like that in the Glasgow derby. I didn’t think there was any particular malice in it, however there’s no getting away from the fact that a guy who shouldn’t have been playing inflicted a season ending injury on one of our key players.

Yeah, it was clearly a frivolous appeal to allow him to play in the derby. I didn’t really have an issue with the tackle and I think that still shot above is from after the initial impact where they both careered into the ball simultaneously and McCulloch’s leg jarred upwards after impact. My problem is that he wasn’t given an extra game ban when the appeal was eventually heard. Kompany got an extra game in England today for appealing his initial 3-game ban from the weekend so he’ll now miss 4 games. And that was an incident well worth appealing - McCulloch’s was just an elbow in the head yet he didn’t get anything extra.

Thankfully McCulloch is pretty shit anyway, didn’t he start out as a striker anyway?

I think so. A bit of a central striker cum wide attacker in the Lafferty ‘not very prolific’ mould.

I watched the game with Rocko and he was calling Kayal a “puff” for staying down.

I find it strange that his stance has changed so much

Why do you make stuff up Bandage ??

He got a 4 game ban as it was his second red card of the season

I can only conclude it’s a underlying need for attention. Kev can probably expand on it better.
