Celtic have been hit with more potential coronavirus disruption among their international players after Hatem Abd Elhamed was put into provisional self-isolation.
The Israel defender felt unwell after playing in his country’s 2-1 defeat by the Czech Republic in Scotland’s Nations League group on Sunday night.
An Israeli Football Association spokesperson told the PA News agency: “Hatem didn’t fell well after the match. He was isolated from the team and did a test this morning (Monday).”
The results of the Covid-19 test are expected later on Monday.
Elhamed’s club and international team-mate, Nir Bitton, tested positive on Friday after playing for Israel against Scotland the previous night.
Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard earlier tested positive while away with France U21s while Ryan Christie was instructed to self-isolate after being deemed to be a contact of former Hoops team-mate Stuart Armstrong while on Scotland duty.
Bitton and Christie will miss Celtic’s Scottish Premiership clash with Rangers while Edouard’s period of self-isolation could make it difficult for him to be ready for Saturday’s game.
