Gary Hooper (hamstring), Thomas Rogne (calf) and James Forrest (damaged nerve) are still missing for Celtic’s SPL clash at Aberdeen but Lassad Nouioui returns after a groin problem.

Scott Brown (hip) and Joe Ledley (knock) are doubts but Kris Commons trained today after missing Scotland’s win in Luxembourg with a hip problem while manager Neil Lennon has received no reports about any injuries sustained on international duty.

Emilio Izaguirre remains on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

Provisional squad: Forster, Matthews, Lustig, Wilson, Mulgrew, Ambrose, Brown, Kayal, Wanyama, Ledley, Commons, Miku, McCourt, Samaras, Zaluska, Watt, Chalmers, Lassad.
