Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers continues to wait on the full extent of Daniel Arzani's injury, but fears that the Caltex Socceroos star may have injured his cruciate ligaments.

The Scottish Premiership outfit are yet to make a full prognosis on the injuries suffered by Arzani, who arrived on a two-year loan deal from Manchester City, and Eboue Kouassi, but Rodgers provided this update.

"We'll assess what's best for Daniel. He still has to go through the final part of his scan at the beginning of next week hopefully and then there will be a plan put in place for him."
