Kouassi set for season on sidelines after suffering knee injury

The midfielder as substituted in the first-half of the 3-0 Betfred Cup semi-final win over Hearts.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed Eboue Kouassi looks set to be ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury with Daniel Arzani set to join him on the sidelines with a similar problem.

Midfielder Kouassi, 20, was substituted in  the first-half of the 3-0 Betfred Cup semi-final win over Hearts at Murrayfield last Sunday.

Arzani, the 19-year-old Australia winger on loan from Manchester City, was carried from the field on a stretcher late in the 5-0 Ladbrokes Premiership win over Dundee at Dens Park on Wednesday night after coming on to make his debut as a second-half substitute.

Ahead of the Ladbrokes Premiership game against Hearts at Parkhead on Saturday, Rodgers said: “We are waiting on the final analysis of the scans but it is unfortunate, it looks like this week we will have two cruciate injuries in terms of young Daniel and Eboue Kouassi as well.

“We have had results through from Eboue, his is ACL.

“Both innocuous really, one a landing and Daniel’s was a twist.

“If it is the case will rule them both out which is hugely disappointing for both boys because they have been on the sidelines working through and in the last week they have been given opportunities.”
