Ange Postecoglou has delivered an injury update on his players ahead of the Hearts tie on Thursday night.
The midfield will have more depth than it has lately with both Tom Rogic and Nir Bitton back from injury. This will likely mean back to the bench for James McCarthy after his 90 minutes against Aberdeen.
Elsewhere, there’s still no time frame for Christopher Jullien’s return to the starting XI.
The Bhoys have been without the Frenchman since last December and as we head into almost a year since the defender collided with the post, we’re uncertain if he’ll make it back before the new year.
The injury update didn’t include Carl Starfelt – perhaps the full press conference wills give us an indication of where the Swede is at in terms of injury recovery.
Celtic fan media are allowed into these press conferences on a rotational basis, it’s not our turn yet so we will have to wait until the official Celtic channels put out the Ange conference in its entirety.
