We could all see it coming couldn’t we?
What the hell was Ange thinking bringing on Kyogo? If you want to rest him don’t put him on the bench in the first place, and certainly don’t put him on after 30 mins!
Mikey Johnston should have come on to replace the injured Albian Ajeti. Yes up front isn’t his best position, but it doesn’t matter, tonight wasn’t a must win game.
Kyogo went off unable to continue with a hamstring injury. We obviously don’t know yet how serious it is but most likely he’s going to be out the same length of time as Jota, 3-4 weeks.
That would mean he’ll miss the cup final and he’ll likely miss the Glasgow derby on 2nd January. An absolute nightmare scenario.
Ange has my full support. But that was an absolutely terrible decision by him tonight.
Time to pray for a miracle.
Because right now we are going into a massive run of important games, with no fit striker and no Jota.
