As the international break draws to a close, International managers rested many players for Tuesday night’s matches.

Ange Postecoglou can breath a huge sigh of relief as it looks like everyone has come through without picking up a knock – apart from Stephen Welsh. The manager has admitted in the past it can be an anxious time for him as he awaits on news about his players.

First up, Steve Clarke named Celtic captain Callum McGregor on his bench, alongside Greg Taylor. Scotland travelled to Austria to play their final friendly of the international break – neither men entered the field as Scotland blew a two goal lead

Matt O’Riley made his debut for Denmark Under 21s from the bench and came through the game unscathed.

After playing 90 minutes on Saturday, Juranovic remained on the bench for his country’s match against Bulgaria and will be fresh for Sunday.

Carl Starfelt was also an unused sub for Sweden as they fell to a 2-0 defeat to Poland.

After travelling back to Glasgow earlier this week, Bitton has not been named in Isreal’s squad.

This is excellent news, with many vital players resting ahead of Sunday’s Glasgow Derby. Having a fresh squad will benefit Celtic as they prepare to travel to Ibrox at the weekend.

Most of Celtic’s internationalists should touch down in Glasgow on Wednesday, giving them a good few days of training ahead of the big match.

It’s the biggest game of the season for both clubs and the result could pay a major factor in the destination of the title.
