Alistair Johnston has shared an update from hospital after being stretchered off for Celtic.

The full-back was forced off after nine minutes in the win over Hibs at Easter Road with a nasty head knock.

Johnston required four minutes of treatment on the pitch from medical staff before being stretched off.

Celtic Way:

The Canadian international had taken a sore one from Nectarios Triantis as the pair competed for an aerial ball in the box - with a penalty awarded to Celtic for the collision.

Brendan Rodgers confirmed Johnston was taken to hospital for checks after the head knock.

And Johnston posted a social media update from hospital as he seemed in high spirits despite the nasty blow.

On his Instagram story, he posted: "Get in. Massive +3 Celtic."

Speaking on BBC, Rodgers said: "The first one [penalty] I am not sure what the referee has given, maybe for a reckless challenge. I don't know, or a collision.

"But he gave it so we were thankful for that, but not thankful for Alistair Johnston. He is away to hospital so hopefully he will be okay."

On Sky Sports, Rodgers added: "It was a nasty one for him.

"I think he has gone to hospital so I will find out a wee bit more later."
