Izaguirre, Samaras injuries worry Celtic boss Lennon

Celtic manager Neil Lennon admits he is worried about two of his players following Sunday's 2-1 win over Partick Thistle.

Honduran left-back Emilio Izaguirre received a knock to the head at Firhill Park whilst Greek forward Georgios Samaras sustained a gash on his leg and the boss says the pair will be closely monitored over the next little while.

"Emilio took a knock to the head so that's very, very worrying," he told Sky Sports.

"He can't remember going for the shot and we had to very quickly remind him of it.

"Another worry is Sammy. He has a four-inch gash across his knee which he is having some stitches put in now."

Celtic now sit six points clear of Aberdeen on top of the Scottish Premier League with eight wins and two draws from ten outings.
