NEIL LENNON has revealed that Mikey Johnston may require surgery due to problems with his calves.

The Scotland youngster didn't travel to France with the Hoops for their pre-season matches and is now booked in to see a specialist to assess his injury.

His boss Lennon explained: “He’s got an injury and he’s back home. Mikey has been having problems with his calves and he needs to see a specialist.

“He’s not had much luck. It’s been a bit stop-start but with his age and going through the maturation process he’s picking up injuries. It’s frustrating for him and frustrating for us.

“Bayo has an injury too and he is getting treatment.

“And Tom Rogic rolled his ankle towards the last day in Loughborough but he should be back for Tuesday.

“Hatem Elhamed took a sore one tonight but he is alright. He was struggling a little and he rolled his ankle but he should be okay.”
