Ange Postecoglou has delivered two pieces of positive injury news on Friday afternoon by declaring both Josip Juranovic and James McCarthy fit to be in the squad against St Johnstone on Saturday afternoon.
Celtic are hoping to cut the gap at the top to just one point with a win over their League Cup semi-final opponents, our Glasgow rivals not playing until Sunday.

Juranovic has been missing for just under three weeks and we’re hoping now he can get into this side and settle in. Anthony Ralston has played a lot of minutes, you have to imagine Josip will get the nod at right back.
The Croatian defender injured himself filling in at left back before the international break.
McCarthy is a squad player at the moment and will probably be on the bench at Celtic Park.
Josip is a big part of Ange’s plans, the right back has all the attributes the manager wants in his right back. His ability to get forward and make things happen will come in handy in the next run of games.
We know how stubborn St Johnstone can be, the more attacking prowess we have on the field – the better.
