Whittaker injury concern for Norwich

Next Story

Norwich's 1-0 friendly win over Celtic at Parkhead on Tuesday night came at a price when new signing Steven Whittaker limped off in the first half with an ankle injury.

Grant Holt's last-gasp strike from close range after Hoops keeper Fraser Forster had blocked a drive from Jonathan Howson was enough to separate the sides. However, Canaries manager Chris Hughton was concerned about the former Rangers defender who went straight up the tunnel.

He said: "We will find out over the next couple of days. What he has done is rock his ankle. We are hoping it is not going to be too bad but generally with these things, you don't know until the next couple of days when you see how it settles down. But we are hoping he is not going to be too bad."
