Celtic fans have been left very frustrated after Daniel Arzani’s debut ended early through injury tonight.
The Hoops battered Dundee 5-0 at Dens Park, scoring four goals in the first half before adding another after half-time.
There were several strong performances, with James Forrest, Tom Rogic and Kieran Tierney all showing up very well.
And the victory takes them second in the Scottish Premiership table, two points closer to Hearts, who drew with Hibs tonight, and four above rivals Rangers, who drew with Kilmarnock tonight too.
Another positive was the performance of Arzani, who climbed off the bench in the 57th minute to show fans exactly why he was brought to the club on loan.
He looked very smart on the ball and actually could have had an assist to his name too.
But Arzani’s night ended early when he went down in the 80th minute before stretchered off with a knee injury.
Considering there are a number of injuries in Brendan Rodgers’ squad already, an injury to a new player like Arzani has left fans very frustrated – despite the victory:
Class 20 minute cameo from Arzani, see you next time in January

Couldn’t make that up. We’ve been waiting to see young Arzani for months, on as a sub for minutes and the lad is carried off.

That is absolutely heartbreaking for Arzani man

We’ve been in need of Arzani but just our luck n he will be injured for ages now

Rodgers spoke post-match about how Arzani twisted his knee and would now be assessed by the club’s medical staff in the coming days.
Fans can hold on to hope that it isn’t too serious, but the Australian winger being stretchered off suggests that it is.
