CELTIC star Kyogo's return from injury will not be a swift one, Ange Postecoglou has revealed. 

The Japanese striker has been out since aggravating a previous hamstring injury against St Johnstone on Boxing Day.

The winter break then followed, with those connected with the club hopeful he would be ready for the fixtures to follow. 

However, it appears Kyogo is no nearer to making a return to action. 

Celtic face Hearts next week and Rangers the week after as Postecoglou goes in search of title glory in his first season in Scotland.

Speaking ahead of the Scottish Cup clash with Alloa, Postecoglou said: "It's not going to be a quick return.

"I'm reluctant to put a timeframe on it. We're still looking at a number of weeks at the moment."
