Celtic goalkeeper assaulted by Scottish Premiership player

Celtic Parkhead

Celtic goalkeeper Lukasz Zaluska has reportedly been attacked by an unnamed Scottish Premiership player during a night out in Glasgow.

An unnamed Scottish Premiership player has been implicated in a reported attack on Celtic goalkeeper Lukasz Zaluska that took place in Glasgow during the early hours of Monday morning.

The 32-year-old keeper, who moved to Parkhead from Dundee United in 2009, was assaulted during a night out in the West End of Glasgow, according to a report from STV.

At this stage the severity of the attack is unknown, though police were called to the scene in the Ashton Lane area of the city, with Zaluska subsequently treated for both blood loss and a head injury.

The name of the player involved in the incident has been withheld for legal reasons, though it is thought that two other Scottish Premiership players were also present and have spoken to the authorities regarding the incident.

Zaluska spent two years at Tannadice prior to moving to Parkhead after signing a pre-contract agreement in 2009.

Once on the books of Celtic’s recent Champions League qualification opponents Legia Warsaw, the 6ft 3in Pole has been capped once at international level.

Currently behind Craig Gordon in the battle to be Celtic’s first-choice goalkeeper, Zaluska was named on the bench for the Bhoys’ 5-0 win over Ross County at the weekend.
