Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers admits that Jozo Simunovic could miss Sunday's Scottish Premiership encounter with Hamilton Academical due to an ankle injury.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Jozo Simunovic could miss Sunday's Scottish Premiership encounter with Hamilton Academical due to injury.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina defender had a scan after injuring his ankle in Thursday's 1-1 Europa League draw with FK Suduva.

The loss of Simunovic would leave Rodgers with only one experienced and recognised centre-back in Kristoffer Ajer for the game against the Accies.

Jack Hendry and Marvin Compper remain out through injury, while Dedryck Boyata missed the trip to Lithuania amid continuing uncertainty over his future.

"[Simunovic] has a scan this afternoon on his ankle," the Northern Irishman told reporters on Friday. "He was in pain when he landed so we will have to assess that late.

"I don't think Jack is available at the weekend. He played against Partick with a really, really sore ankle. In fairness to him he put himself out there to play and he was in too much pain. So he will probably come into training at the beginning of the week."

Forward Odsonne Edouard, meanwhile, could return in next Thursday's home leg against Suduva after missing the past three games.
