Daizen Maeda and David Turnbull train with Celtic after international injuries

Daizen Maeda and David Turnbull both attended a Celtic training session on Thursday after suffering injuries during the international break.

Japan striker Maeda was substituted at half-time in last Friday’s friendly against the United States with a hamstring injury and was not fit enough to make the squad for Tuesday’s game against Ecuador.

Turnbull retired from the Scotland squad with an ankle injury after initially reporting for duty.

The former Motherwell midfielder and Maeda could face Turnbull’s old club at Celtic Park on Saturday after both were filmed training in Lennoxtown in video shared on their club’s Twitter account.

Neither forwards Sead Haksabanovic and Giorgos Giakoumakis nor central defenders Cameron Carter-Vickers and Carl Starfelt could be seen in the footage.

Giakoumakis was in the Greece squad but due to a leg problem he was deemed unfit to play in Nations League games against Cyprus or Northern Ireland.

Greece manager Gus Poyet said he did not expect Giakoumakis to be available for the Hoops this Saturday as they try to get back on track after the recent defeat by St Mirren.

Haksabanovic was substituted off after 32 minutes of Montenegro’s 2-0 Nations League defeat at home to Finland on Monday.

Carter-Vickers pulled out of the US squad after withdrawing during practice ahead of the St Mirren game, while Starfelt worked his way back from a knee injury he sustained against Rangers in early September.
