BRENDAN RODGERS will keep everyone guessing before Celtic’s trip to Hamilton on Sunday after the Irishman refused to rule both Craig Gordon and Kieran Tierney in or out.

Kieran has been struggling with a calf injury but has returned to full training in the last two days.

Gordon was rushed back a bit earlier than expected with Bain being ineligible against Dundee midweek but Rodgers is keeping his cards close to his chest.

However, the Celtic gaffer did seem to have his reservations about playing Tierney on an artificial just a week out from the Glasgow Derby semi final.

“Craig’s doing well. That’s him now had 200 games with 100 clean sheets. It’s a very good record and he’s recovered well so we’ll see how he is over the next couple of days.” said Rodgers.

“Kieran’s back in training and he’s back very strong but with the calf issues you always have to be wary.”

“When there have been issues with a calf or knee you really have to be careful when you play on the astro. So we’ll have a chat about that.”

Tierney being out means Celtic have had to change their shape or play Callum McGregor out of position to try and deal with the defender’s absence.

Most importantly though, KT should not be rushed back for the Hamilton game with a big semi final game next weekend.
