    He done my nut in but I’m genuinely delighted with that, poor * body letting him down.

    LUCKLESS former Celtic defender Jozo Simunovic has been forced to have another knee operation just a few weeks after playing his first game for 639 days with his new club in Croatia.

    The 27-year-old finally ended his football exile after leaving Celtic in June 2020 by signing for HNK Gorica, who currently sit in mid-table in their league.




    Simonovic made his bow for his new club last month and played the entire 90 minutes while making a winning debut in a 1-0 win against NK Hrvatski Dragovoljac.

    It was his first full game since he featured for the Hoops in a Europa League defeat to FC Copenhagen at home in February 2020.

    He had two serious knee injuries while at Celtic and underwent a series of operations. He saw several potential moves to Spain and Italy collapse because of doubts about his knee.

    Since then he's played three games for Gorica, but has suffered another knee injury setback and will go under the knife next week for what his club has described as a 'minor knee operation that is expected to keep him out for a month.'



    Simunovic made 130 appearances in total for Celtic over five years and won 11 trophies in Glasgow.

    Honestly I feel bad for this guy but he needs to retire or he risks being in pain for the rest of his life. He is still young and should be able to invest in a new career.

    Lobed the big man. Great defender, * knees though for playing on the plastic pitches in this league. Shame we will have Kilmarnock back next year for that.


    But regardless of how unfortunately missed he was, two big * moments will make him go down in cult history here, that tackle against miller and that header in the game after McNeil's passing.
    Almost poetic that goal was.

    Think Deila ruined him really with playing through injuries. Coulda been a star.
