“I think he’s terrific” – Hugh Keevins says Celtic shouldn’t take the omission of his favourite Hoops player “lightly” ahead of Hearts tie

Celtic head to Tynecastle this weekend with a double defensive injury headache. Cameron Carter-Vickers and Alistair Johnston will both miss the potential title clincher.

And journalist, Hugh Keevins reckons the omission of both shouldn’t be underestimated by the fans. And that includes his favourite player.

Speaking on Clyde 1 Superscoreboard, Keevins said, “Outside of Ibrox, Tynecastle is the toughest place for Celtic to play.

I don’t think you lightly dismiss the loss of Cameron Carter-Vickers and Alistair Johnson. Carter-Vickers was a colossus against Rangers last weekend.

Johnston as you know, has quickly become my favourite player. I think he’s terrific. So I do not think you lightly dismiss the loss of those two at Tynecastle.

But I think Celtic would like to go there and get it done. There would be so much build up to the game at Ibrox the week after if they didn’t get it done at Tynecastle.

I think Ange Postecoglou will go there and do what Postecoglou always says and ‘play our football’.

And if Celtic play their football they’re good enough to go there and win take the title.”

I don’t think anyone at Celtic takes the omission of Johnston lightly. But what we do have is a player in Anthony Ralston that is more than capable of filling in for him. That’s why the Celtic fans are still confident ahead of the trip to Tynecastle.
