Gershon in line for Hoops debut

Israeli defender Rami Gershon could make his Celtic debut in the Scottish Premier League clash with Hearts but Australian midfielder Tomas Rogic is still awaiting a work permit.

Wingers James Forrest (hamstring) and Paddy McCourt (knock) and defender Efe Ambrose, who is on African Nations Cup duty with Nigeria, are the only players missing.

Anthony Stokes is in the squad after recovering from an ankle injury but is unlikely to feature.

Provisional squad: Forster, Matthews, Lustig, Izaguirre, Wilson, Rogne, Mulgrew, Brown, Kayal, Wanyama, Hooper, Samaras, Lassad, Commons, Zaluska, McGeouch, Watt, Gershon, Stokes.
