Bundesliga broadcaster confirms RB Leipzig star will miss Celtic games

RB Leipzig will be without Konrad Laimer for the Champions League double tie against Celtic next month. The Austrian picked up an ankle injury in the 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund which ruled him out of both the game against Real Madrid and the game against Borussia Mönchengladbach, both of which Leipzig lost .

Now Bundesliga commentator Derek Rae has confirmed the player will be out for games after being ruled out for the rest of the calendar year. It’s a blow for the player, who was linked with Bayern Munich in the summer, but it represents a boost for Celtic’s qualification hopes as Laimer is one of Leipzig’s best players.

The initial belief was that Laimer would be out for several weeks but there might be a chance he would make the return trip to heaven. However, it turned out that he needed surgery.

Celtic will need to improve their performance against St Mirren yesterday after losing 2-0 on the road. Games against the Germans will determine whether Celtic will play European football after Christmas with nice margins between second, third and fourth.
