Celtic have been dealt another defensive injury blow, according to a report.

It's claimed centre-back Maik Nawrocki has been ruled out of the match against Dundee on Wednesday night.

The defender, 23, had played an hour in the win over Motherwell at the weekend but reportedly suffered a leg knock.

Nawrocki was replaced by the returning Cameron Carter-Vickers at Fir Park who had been sidelined since Boxing Day.

However, Brendan Rodgers could now face another defensive issue with Nawrocki unable to train with his team-mates on Monday.

According to the Daily Record, he summer signing is reportedly receiving intensive treatment for a leg issue with club chiefs facing an anxious wait to discover the full extent of the problem.

Rodgers will have Carter-Vickers available in midweek but it is unclear whether the USA international will be risked from the start on his return to action.

Liam Scales, Stephen Welsh and Gustaf Lagerbielke are the other options for Rodgers in central defence.

Meanwhile, Rodgers vowed Celtic will write their own story this season after the late victory over Motherwell.

He said: “I think the story is already written for us this season, and that is the one thing that I reinforce with the players. All the noise, everything that has been around this team for virtually the whole season.

“We get the chance to write our story, no one else. And that is what we will do.

“Today was very, very important for that, for the belief, so now we go into our next game and the optics of it are that its two points [to Rangers] and very, very close.

“I think that is how it is going to be through to the end, but it’s about playing with that mentality in the second half.

“When we do that, we look a really good team.”
