Celtic winger Daizen Maeda has delivered a positive update on his Celtic injury.

The Japanese international has vowed he will "come back stronger" from his setback.

Maeda, 26, is set to be out for up to six weeks after straining his knee ligament in the loss against Atletico Madrid.

The forward player was shown a straight red card - after a VAR check - in the Champions League contest forΒ  a tackle on Mario Hermoso.

Maeda had dangled a foot in the tackle but general consensus ruled the player to be unfortunate to receive a red card for the challenge.

And in a further blow for Celtic, Maeda picked up a nasty injury as a result with Brendan Rodgers revealing that he could have avoided injury should he have been stronger in the challenge.

Now, though, in a positive update, Maeda has insisted he will "come back stronger" from his injury as he shared a Celtic celebration snap alongside a photograph with his children on X.

On Maeda's injury, Rodgers commented: "Daizen will probably face up to six weeks out with the injury from the challenge so he has strained his knee ligament which comes when you knock a player on the foot.

"If we went in stronger in the challenge then he probably would not have the injury so it was a clash of feet that just opened up his knee ligament.

"It is a shame for him and for us because he has been brilliant."
