Speaking about Ajati, Lane told Celtic TV: “I think he looks like a hamstring for an Albion so it could be a few weeks for him.”

On Ryan Christie, he added: “It was windy and he had a little pain in his stomach.

“We’ll have to wait and see. I think it’ll be fine for Thursday.”

Celtic took the lead just seven minutes later when the ball was called to the bottom of the left-hand corner.

Ajeti doubled Hoops’ advantage 35 minutes after the forced release.

Mohamed Illinoisi scored Celtic’s third and the first league goal of the campaign to secure all three points for the hosts.

Leigh Griffiths was back on the bench with the Scotland international named, but an early unbeaten loss will be worrisome for Lennon with big games on the horizon.
