However, the Aussie boss did confirm that David Turnbull had picked up a knock and will miss the match. The Scottish midfielder had earned a place in the starting team last weekend against St Mirren, but his performance was less than inspiring.

Ange postecoglou declared Kyogo “good to go”, confirming that he had a few days of training behind him. He said: [STV]

Kyogo is fine, he trained today and had a session yesterday, so he is good to go.

Turnbull took a bit of a knock last week so he will miss the game and everyone else is ok.”

Kyogo has 19 goals in the league so far this season, leading the charts. His availability comes as a big boost for Celtic, as the striker hunts the 20-goal mark.

David Turnbull has been a good option from the bench in recent matches, commonly popping up with a goal or an assist. His knock shouldn’t impact the team too much, with a lot of strength and depth in the midfield area.
