Mulgrew could miss Poland qualifier through injury

Mulgrew could miss Poland qualifier through injuryCharlie Mulgrew is rated a major doubt for Scotland’s crucial Euro 2016 qualifier vs Poland, according to Celtic boss Ronny Deila.

Gordon Strachan’s side need to defeat the Poles on 8 October if they are to stand any chance of qualifying and they are 2.65 (33/20) to emerge victorious.

The final qualifier against Gibraltar is unlikely to pose any problems, but Scotland also need Republic of Ireland not to win any of their two matches in order to secure the play-off spot.

But, team’s chances of defeating very good Poland side have suffered a blow as it was revealed that important player Charlie Mulgrew (20/2) is doubtful through a thigh injury.

The utility footballer has already missed last three games for Celtic and the Bhoys manager Ronny Deila does not think the 29-year-old will be available for Scotland’s games.

“Charlie, I think, will be ready to play after the national team (games). I think that is going to be tough (to make it),” Deila said.

“I am not 100 per cent in that, I am not a physio – even though I think I am sometimes. But, as I understand it, he is still not on the pitch training (with the) football so it will be tough to reach the Scotland games.”

Mulgrew started five games in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, covering various positions in defence and midfield and no doubt that his potential absence would be considered a major blow.
