Celta Vigo striker John Guidetti has taken to Instagram - as seen above - to offer words of support for his international team mate MIkael Lustig.

Guidetti joined Celta earlier this summer following a loan spell with Celtic last season, where he hit 15 goals in 35 before moving on to Spain on a free transfer.

The striker clearly still pays attention to Bhoys games though, and is seemingly aware of the injury suffered by his former team-mate Mikael Lustig.

The Swedish right back was stretchered off in Celtic's 3-2 win over Malmo in the Champions League on Wednesday night, and he could be missing for some time.

After the game, Guidetti took to Instagram to pass on well wishes to his compatriot and former Bhoys team-mate Lustig, backing him to return stronger than ever from his injury.

"Damage should be prohibited by God," said Guidetti. "But I know if anyone can come back stronger and handle this, it is you brother," he added.

The Bhoys will miss Lustig in defence, especially having sold Adam Matthews to Sunderland earlier this summer, but with Efe Ambrose and new signing Saidy Janko also in the ranks, manager Ronny Deila should have enough options to cope with Lustig's absence.
