Celtic’s Welsh midfielder Joe Ledley’s season is over

[singlepic id=1065 w=320 h=240 float=left]Celtic have reported that midfielder Joe Ledley will not play any part in the title run-in due to a hamstring injury. The Welshman passed a late fitness test to face rivals Rangers in the season’s final Old Firm derby match on Sunday, which finished 0-0.

But Ledley had to be replaced in the second half through injury and it was thought that he had suffered a recurrence of the hamstring injury that rated him doubtful for the match, but it has now been confirmed that he has sustained a different injury to his upper hamstring and will not feature again this season for Celtic, and is a major doubt for Wales’ Carling Nations Cup campaign.

It is a major set back to Neil Lennon’s side as he hopes to win the SPL title at the first time of asking as Celtic manager. Ledley will also miss the Scottish Cup Final match on the 21st May against Motherwell.

But with a plethora of midfielders at his disposal, Lennon could call on the services of Kris Commons and Shaun Maloney amongst others, to fill the gap left by Ledley’s injury.
