Some Celtic fans have reacted on Twitter to the news about Leigh Griffiths.
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed to The Record on Friday that the 27-year-old hitman had suffered a setback in his return to full fitness, ruling him out for another three weeks.
As a result, Griffiths will miss the Hoops' second Champions League qualifier, if Rodgers's side - who won the first leg 3-0 on Tuesday - finish the job against Alashkert in Glasgow next week.
The Bhoys marksman, who is suffering with a thigh injury, was absent for several portions of last season, and some fans of the Parkhead club admit that injuries are becoming a worrying trend for the Scot.

No again— Sean (@Seanbhoy96) July 13, 2018
Will be hard enough for him to get I to the team without these persisting injuries, shame as he's guaranteed goals.— Andy McKenzie (@andymckenzie7) July 13, 2018
Becoming a bit of a liability....shame as he is a great goalscorer— Robert Bradley (@rbradley1971) July 13, 2018

Marvin Compper is injures less than Griffiths— (@peteyhughes95) July 13, 2018
Really is injured far to much— Paul Andrew Martin (@paul_m1888) July 13, 2018
In truth, Griffiths, who earns £18,000 per week in Glasgow according to The Star, was unlikely to start Celtic's next Champions League tie anyway, given the form of Odsonne Edouard and Moussa Dembele.
The French duo certainly seem to have struck up a brilliant partnership in Rodgers's two-pronged attack, lessening the need for the former Hibernian star, but Griffiths, who scored 40 goals during the 2015-16 campaign, is always a reliable player to come off the bench.
