Celtic v Dundee Team News

Kieran Tierney will return to training on Thursday according to Brendan Rodgers and so misses this match.

Jozo Simunovic returns from suspension and could take Dedryck Boyata’s place. The Belgian was hooked in favour of Jack Hendry after a poor first half performance against Ross County.

Patrick Roberts will be pushing for a start after two substitute appearances since returning from a hamstring injury.

Leigh Griffiths also made his comeback from the bench on Saturday and is back in contention following a persistent calf problem that has plagued the striker all season.

Craig Gordon will make the call on whether he is fit or not to replace Scott Bain who is ineligible due to being on loan from Dundee .

Dundee boss Neil McCann could name an unchanged side for what would only be the fourth time in the league this season.

The Dark Blues got a point against Hearts on Sunday from a game they feel they should have won.

The Dees also have players returning from injury. Julen Etxabeguren played for the under 20s during the week after enduring a torrid season where he has battled back from a snapped Achilles tendon, only to be almost immediately ruled out again with a dislocated shoulder.

Striker Craig Wighton had his first involvement in the squad since July on Saturday, but didn’t get off the bench.

Marcus Haber is out for the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery on a back problem.
