BRENDAN RODGERS has given Celtic fans some welcome news for the weekend with the Irishman saying he’s ‘hopeful’ Tom Rogic will be available for the semi-final.
Tom is a big game player for Celtic and it would be another major blow after already ruling out Scott Brown and Leigh Griffiths if the Aussie star couldn’t play.
Cristian Gamboa and Jozo Simunovic still remain major doubts with both of them heading for scans this afternoon to see the extent of their injuries picked up in Germany.

Both players didn’t finish the 90 minutes in Leipzig as the team went down to a disappointing 2-0 defeat.
If Jozo is out and with Boyata suspended then it will fall on Jack Hendry to come in and deputise again.
In such a big game we may have a youngster low on confidence as well as a defender in Benkovic who is not 100% fit.
It’s going to be interesting at Murrayfield. It’s up to Celtic to set the pace early on.
This is the Games when you see how good a manager you have this game but can we win everything this season maybe maybe not but nothing is going stop us going for it…
I get the feeling who ever plays this game will be end to end so we nee to score more goals than them so get stuck in and do it for yourself the club and most of all the fans do this Celtic and give CL and his hearts team payback lets get stuck in and do them right this time….
Why would we want HOPELESS CH and RB to be fit for semi? Try somebody else willing to get stuck in!
