Celtic fans have admitted that Nir Bitton being out for the season is a big concern.
He said: “Nir will probably be out for the season which is a blow for us.
“It’s a shame for him as he’s a very important member of our squad."
The Israeli international has damaged his knee, and will have to undergo surgery to correct the problem.
Bitton joins a long list of Celtic players on the treatment table at the moment, with the Bhoys struggling to keep their key men fit.
And Celtic fans admit that losing Bitton is a blow to their chances of success.
Is Bitton actually out for the rest of the season now too? Our injury list is unbelievable— Karl Bradley (@karldbradley) February 15, 2018
Bitton ruled out for the rest of the season. They just don't stop coming. It's like our whole squad has turned into Daniel Sturridge.— Simply  Celtic (@TheHoopsFan) February 15, 2018

Startin to wonder about training is it UFC training ?— Padraig (@JacobiteBhoy) February 15, 2018
Dear god, that’s Nir Bitton injured now as well. The Celtic squad are fast becoming a group of professional hospital patients who’s careers have been blighted by football.— Jimmy Brolly CSC (@JimmyBrollyCSC) February 15, 2018
Have we got an octagon in the middle of Lennoxtown? Bitton out for the rest of the season now.— Ryan Herity (@RyanHerity1) February 15, 2018
IMO has a vital part to play when wanting to kill off games!
Bitton will now be ruled out for Celtic’s Europa League tie this evening, which comes against Zenit St. Petersburg.
Bitton could have covered at centre back or in central midfield, and losing his versatility will be a frustration.
Celtic go into tonight’s tie with Zenit as underdogs, but they will have home advantage.
